I have not seen a sign singling out bikes, but after they put the new bridge in I saw the sign "for foot traffic only" (or something similar). I am not fond of stopping on purpose so I started riding the road back. More recently I have just turned around at the bottom of that hill and take the trail the other way.

Keep in mind that pedestrians, bikers, horses, and an occasional motorcycle would cross the old bridge. I personally think the sign is meant to discourage the horseback riders from taking their horses across the bridge. As long as you do not lockup a rear wheel and leave skid marks, bikes will not damage the bridge. Just my 2 cents.
We have received word from the officials out at Boyd Pond Park that several people have complained about bike riders riding their bikes on the boardwalk bridge - there are signs that clearly state to dismount and walk your bike across. Please use good trail etiquette and obey the posted signs!
We are looking for a member that uses this trail frequently to serve as liaison between the officials at Boyd Pond Park and SORBAcsra. If you have a little time now and then...... firstname.lastname@example.org
I have complained about "4 wheelers" and golf cars. I took pictures of those vehicles crossing the bridge and called the park manager. Those people ignored the sign that said "no motorized vehicles on pedestrian bridge". I asked the people on the golf carts if they have seen the "no motorized vehicles" sign and they said, matter of fact, they do it all the time, because they live just over yonder. Bicycles are no problem, not heavy, usually very polite. Motorized vehicles is a different story. I am glad to see the park installed those poles to stop the motorized vehicles.
