Thanks for this link Adrian.  Sounds like this was at least mostly a misunderstanding, which is good news for us!

Ryan---
I've sent my letter to Mr. Francis. Hopefully there are channels to get support from the cycling community in VA and TN.

Here is a website that offers some insight into what the Park Superintendent's position is:

I know we are not in the Blue Ridge, but I also know that a lot of you (like myself) enjoy traveling to the mountains to ride - particularly to ride on the Parkway.  It seems that our access to the Parkway could be limited by current planning that is going on (see below).  If you feel strongly about this, as I do, I encourage you go to this site: http://capwiz.com/lab/issues/alert/?alertid=58057536 to contact the Parkway Superintendent and let him know your thoughts on this proposal.  It just takes a few minutes and adding your personal message will make it that much more powerful...

Bicyclists need a forward-thinking plan for the Blue Ridge Parkway

Take Action!

Act now to submit comments on the Blue Ridge Parkway Draft General Management Plan
 

The National Park Service is asking for feedback on its Draft Management Plan, a 684 page document that will set management policy for the Parkway for the next twenty years and beyond. The proposal favored by park management (option B) could restrict future encouragement and promotion of bicycling and hinder the Parkway’s ability to evolve to meet the growing demand for active transportation.

We need cyclists from Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee to urge the Blue Ridge Parkway Superintendent to work with cycling groups to plan for and promote bicycling and other non-motorized forms of transportation in the park.

Please email the Blue Ridge Parkway Superintendant to ask that he work with bicyclists to improve the plan that will determine the future of bicycling on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
