    Events in Woodside impacting cycling

    This was forwarded to me - it looks like the next couple of weekends there's lots going on in and around Woodside:


    Saturday May 3rd: Woodside Rd, between Canada Rd and
    Kings Mtn road, is closed from 8:30AM until about
    11AM. Parts of the roads back off Albion, Manuella,
    Olive Hill will be closed from 8:30 until 9:30AM. Once
    re-opened, the area around Woodside School will still
    be over run with cars, kids and horses from 11AM until
    about 3PM. Cars will park alongside Canada Rd near
    Woodside Rd, and the cars/horses/pedestrians/pets will
    make that section of road unsafe for the Spectrum Ride
    to come through. Best to avoid it altogether.

    Sunday, May 4th: Tripp Rd between 8AM and 2PM will be
    overrun with little kids, ponys, horses, trailers,
    cars parked along the road, and a couple of hundred
    pedestrians. Best to avoid it on bikes during that
    time. If you do ride it, be very cautious, since a
    bike can easily spook a pony from under a 6 year old
    girl, and the free runnning horse can do lots of
    damage when scared. Horse trailers will be pulling
    out, backing up, etc. from the side of an already
    narrow road.

    Thursday and Friday, May 8 and 9: Woodside Church
    holds its spring rummage sale. Woodside Rd between
    Roberts Mkt and Albion becomes nearly impassable with
    cars parking in all the bike lanes, and overhanging
    onto the street. Best to avoid it from 8AM until after
    6PM. School traffic merely compounds the gridlock.

    Saturday, May 10: Spring Clean Up at Woodside School,
    8AM until noon. Woodside School parking lot is closed.
    Woodside Rd is backed up with trailers hauling trash
    to the be picked up in the school parking lot.

    Hope that this helps. Safe rides to all.

    Looks like the locals are taking back the streets from the horde of invading cyclists!

    I wonder what would happen if a ton of cyclists showed up to help clean up the school.

    They would faint. Its a shame the town isn't more open. There is really nothing they can do about all the cyclist, why don't they just embrace their visiting?
