How did this Bike Race get a permit to proceed and close off the course route without consulting the residents living on this route? We received a hand delivered flyer last week notifying us of the race. I live on Seneca St and will be completely restricted to my home for the majority of the day. I’m not the only person expressing their displeasure in finding out that this is happening and it’s a done deal. When did T-burg start operating this way? Is this race to raise money for a cause? What is the point? How was this approved without asking the people who live on this route? I’ve lived here my whole life and never has this been an issue. People have plans, a woman is doing the Hospicare women Swimmin’, I can’t physically park outside the route and easily walk to my car to go anywhere. I’m not saying I wouldn’t have said yes if asked, but we should have been asked, rather than have this forced upon us regardless of hardship or even merely inconvenience.
