I was under the impression it was restricted to pedestrians, but if you go to the "events" section of the Riverwalk website, there is a picture of cyclists:

Wilmington River Walk | EVENTS

If no one else can answer definitively, I'd use the "contacts" section of the website to ask, or call the City and ask.

Yep. You'd end up walking the bike through much of it and then all of a sudden it would be over.

I think y'all should let the OP decide whats long enough. Its 2 miles from bridge to bridge, with the existing riverwalk covering well over half of that...the rest can traversed via streets/parking lots. I suspect a 4 mile ride is plenty for the OP...he/she can alays ride it twice if its not. I also suspect one could pick a time when its not that crowded.

So I am hoping it is at least legal to ride a bicycle on the boardwalk? (viz there are no signs saying 'Bicycling not allowed'?) In Duluth MN where I hail from, I would ride my bike at 6am along the boardwalk next to the lake, about a one mile at most bike ride, see the sunrise, end up at a coffee shop, and I miss that-- I was hoping I could do something similar if I wanted to on the Wilmington boardwalk. The lakewalk (boardwalk) in Duluth also had pedestrians, rollerbladers, joggers, but early in the morning it was not so crowded so that all such persons could share the boardwalk.
