"Maybe" someday. But the current plan is to only have black top within the city limits (basically).
Actually I think have already been riding the packed limestone with the skinny tired road bikes. At least looking at the tracks.
One guy I know who is an avid road biker and part of the rail trail movement said he would ride his bike on it.
The packed limestone is very very small. With some rain I would imagine it turning into more like a dirty concrete.
