Letter: Bike race rouses ire of reader

I’m writing to express a grievance with whoever was in charge of the bicycle race that was held in Folsom on Aug. 18. I missed an important meeting at Prairie City SVRA due to all the streets going to the area being closed. I tried three different routes thinking that surely all roads would not be closed. I did not see any warnings prior to the event saying these roads would be closed nor were there warnings that other access roads would be closed as well. Traffic was backed up at every route I took. I know that I’m not the only person upset about the situation as I saw many people showing aggravation. I believe Folsom has bike trails available to cyclist and think this would have been more appropriate. Don Cruse, Folsom
