Bringing Neighbors Together

Celebrate May is Bike Month

Three bike events are coming up soon - one in Eastern Sacramento County, and two right here in Elk Grove.

First, Sacramento County and the City of Folsom are closing a 12 mile section of Scott Road from the US-50/Scott Road interchange to Latrobe Road, including portions of Placerville Road and White Rock Road. Scott Road is in the eastern portion of Sacramento County and is one of the most scenic roadways in the area. This road closure will provide bicyclists and pedestrians with an opportunity to travel on a stretch of road -- with no motor vehicle traffic -- that has rolling hills, lush vegetation and impressive views of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Event details are listed below.
 Time/Date: Sunday, May 5, 8 AM to 4 PM.
 Location: Scott Road between the US-50/Scott Road Interchange and Latrobe
Road, including potions of Placerville Road and White Rock Road. These sections of roadway will be closed to all through vehicles.
 Access: Bicyclists and pedestrians can enter from: 1) The north or south event
limits of Scott Road, 2) from east or west on White Rock Road, or 3) From
Placerville Road south to White Rock Road.
 Parking: Parking will be available at the Latrobe Road (south) end of Scott
Road and to the north in the Palladio shopping center parking lot at the northwest corner of Iron Point Road and East Bidwell Street.
 Light-Rail: Bicyclists can also take Light-Rail to the Folsom Boulevard/Iron
Point Road Station and cycle east on Iron Point Road to East Bidwell Street
south or to the Placerville Road undercrossing to White Rock Road.
 Detours: Detours are listed on this map. Bicyclists and pedestrians can enter at
locations indicated in red on the map.

throughout the event.
