That's typical Park Service communication. Since the Skyline and Blue Ridge Parkway are essentially road parks, they probably do see a fair number of accidents over the course of a year, so they are probably overly cautious. In NC, they require cyclists to have head and taillights on their bikes if riding on stretches with tunnels, which is probably a good thing because some of the tunnels can be pretty long. The single file warning is probably also a good thing because the BRP has essentially no paved shoulders and isn't particularly wide, so traffic can back up pretty bad if someone is driving slow or bikers are riding abreast. Another bit of advice is don't cycle the BRP during fall leaf season -- the traffic is incredible.
