New Camp Pendleton Cycling Rules

Posted by: on January, 22 2016

In the interest of protecting the marines and their family’s at Camp Pendleton, a new registration system for bikers wishing to gain access to the base is coming.

Athletes participate in the Cycling competition. The Marine Corps Trials are a Paralympic style competition in which wounded, ill, and injured Marines, Marine Veterans, and international allies compete in archery, cycling, field, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, track, and wheelchair basketball.

Quoting the Base’s Public Affairs Director:

“Camp Pendleton wanted to give you an update on our visitor access policy. We value the great relationship we have with the area cycling community and wanted to develop a process allowing bicyclist’s continued access to Camp Pendleton. By Mar. 1, bicyclist will be required to register in order to have access to the base. An online process will be complete mid-February and base access will be good for one year. Bicyclist will need to re-register every year. Until the registration process is finalized, bicyclists will still be able to enter the base with their U.S. or State government issued identification card just like now. After Mar. 1, all bicyclists will need to be registered and show their U.S. or State identification when entering the base. Once the registration process is up and running in a few weeks, we will share the link. Our goal is to maintain a great relationship with area riders but also balance that with security and protection for our Marines, Sailors, civilian employees and families. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
