    I know that middle y has 2 sounds:
    Y says short i in a closed syllable as in
    Mystery, gym, cylinder, syrup, gym,…
    Y says long i in an open syllable as in
    Cycle, python, rhyme, analyse
    But what about the word bicycle?
    Bi, Cy, cle here it has short i in an open syllable
    Are there other words with middle y in open syllable with a short i sound ?
