Letter: Folsom not very bicycle friendly

The Telegraph on Sept. 12 purports to show all the bike trails in Folsom, but on inspection, almost all of those are bike “lanes” — most on busy streets like Folsom Boulevard, Blue Ravine and Bidwell. Really? I wouldn’t take my kid on most of them. Before we pat ourselves on the back, Folsom has a long way to go to be a great bike town. We have the potential. There is plenty of space to add new off-street bike paths, but having lived in towns like Charlottesville, VA, and Germantown, MD, I know we can aspire to a much higher standard of achievement.
