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.

Here is a website that offers some insight into what the Park Superintendent's position is:http://www.bicycleretailer.com/news/newsDetail/6266.html
