It’s true. No more bike riding through the cemetery, without a family pass. It’s disruptive to the purpose of the grounds, say cemetery officials and mourners.

“The primary purpose of ANC’s roads are to facilitate funeral services, vehicles operating in the daily care of the cemetery, and families visiting the final resting place of loved ones,” states the Arlington Cemetery website. “While we know that riders intend no disrespect, bicyclists traversing the cemetery grounds do impact funeral services and the experience that families expect and deserve as they visit their loved one’s grave.”

Citing “legitimate safety concerns” and the fact there are no bike baths on the grounds, mixing cyclists with pedestrians and vehicles creates a safety hazard.”
