No cars allowed: Taking advantage of an open Colonial Parkway

Several miles of the Colonial Parkway between Jamestown and Williamsburg were closed to cars Saturday as part of Pedal the Parkway, an annual event associated with Bike Month.

The selected route was closed off from about 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Pedal the Parkway is an official event of the Colonial National Historical Park.

By 10 a.m., volunteers had issued about 70 helmets that were free of charge.
