Does anyone have anymore updates on the Outer Banks route?
Currently heading towards Kitty Hawk but have heard one of the ferries is "locals only"?

Any input gratefully appreciated.

I'll reply for the benefit of others; Cedar Island - Ocaroke ferry is limited to locals only. No cyclists.

I believe NC 12 on Ocracoke Island is still closed from Hurricane Dorian. I am referencing this NCDOT announcement: https://www.ncdot.gov/news/press-releases/Pages/2019/2019-09-19-ocracoke-road-repair-plan.aspx

In addition to my previous post about NC 12 I also found this tweet from the NC DOT: https://twitter.com/NCDOT_NC12/status/1174694107131891714

If you are traveling from Kitty Hawk I would not go down the Outer Banks. There is no way off the southern end of the islands except through Ocracoke Village and with NC 12 closed there is no way to get there.

Thanks, Dan.
I arrived in Kitty Hawk today, or to be more accurate I was blown in!  :D

I've checked on and off for the past couple of weeks, do it's disappointing that I can't do the Outer Banks - but that's bike touring!

I'll be heading for an alligator park tomorrow  :)
