Blue Ridge Parkway officials report they have received calls from parkway users asking if reports they have read are true that bicycle use will be restricted. The proposed General Management Plan does not propose restricting bicycle use on the parkway and calls for no changes for the use of bicycles on the highway. Parkway officials say they welcome all bike riders and other user types to visit the Parkway at all times.
