Not allowed to commute to work...

While commuting off-base via bicycle and observing all local and state laws, can a soldier be verbally ordered by his superior officer to not commute by bicycle via a specific route or distance until further notice? In this, the officer lists concerns of safety (the other vehicles on the road) and health (the distance of the ride) and the effect on the mission should the soldier be injured or killed in an accident as reasons for the ban, but no laws have been broken and the soldier is an experienced bicycle commuter, riding off-base with helmet and other safety equipment.
