Bicycling in Lynchburg, VA

Later this fall my wife and I will be spending a few days in Lynchburg and I am considering hanging the mountain bikes on a rack and taking them with us.

The Lynchburg city web site indicates there are several bike paths but it will be a first time visit and I don't know a thing about the area.

Will it be worthwhile to take the bikes?

And, which paths will be the best for a day ride and perhaps a picnic?

Thanks in advance,

PS -- here's the link: https://www.lynchburgva.gov/Index.aspx?page=506
Current bikes: Unknown year Specialized (rigid F & R) Hardrock, '80's era Cannondale police bike; '03 Schwinn mongrel MTB; '03 Specialized Hard Rock (the wife's)
Gone away: '97 Diamondback Topanga SE, '97 Giant ATX 840 project bike; '01 Giant TCR1 SL; and a truckload of miscellaneous bikes used up by the kids and grand-kids

Status quo is the mental bastion of the intellectually lethargic...

Cycling in Lynchburg is pretty awful, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not familiar with the bike paths, but the roads to get around town would be murder on bikes.

You'd be pretty close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I'd be sure to hit that if I were staying in the area.
