Shame on city for snarling traffic for bike celebration

-A +A
I would just like to express my displeasure with the Folsom City Council’s decision to permit the bike races last weekend that totally clogged our streets. I don’t know what they were thinking. It took us 45 minutes to go from the intersection of Oak Avenue and Folsom Auburn Road to Bidwell. The worst part was that this mess lasted until almost 4 p.m. Our city police did the best they could but the Cyclebration event should have never been approved. If this is an annual event, perhaps our city council would consider the traffic nightmares before approving it again. And, if they do approve it, then at least mandate that the event be completed by 10 or 11 a.m. What a mess. Jim Darrah Folsom
