Benbrook Festival May Effect Cyclists' Usual Route

In advance of the 2010 Benbrook Heritage Fest, the City of Benbrook is distributing an e-mail to get the word out to cyclists about the effects the Fest will have on traffic and cyclists this weekend.

Many cyclists continue beyond the southwestern end of the Trinity Trails in Benbrook on surface streets.

Here is the complete e-mail that the City of Benbrook sent out today (Oct. 13, 2010):
The 2010 Benbrook Heritage Fest event takes place this Saturday, October 16. The event location has moved to the park area east of the tennis courts (beside Benbrook Stables), off Creekside Drive in Dutch Branch Park.

Event guests will be directed to enter Beach Road on the north, and Stevens Road on the south. Guests will then access Lakeshore Drive on both ends to the event parking area.

Event planners recognize that cyclists often enjoy traveling along this route on weekends. Cyclists are asked to consider alternate travel routes to avoid heavy event traffic this Saturday. "We encourage cyclists to avoid this area on Saturday, if possible. This will increase safety and convenience for both the cyclists and motorists attending the event," says Patty Bissey, Marketing Coordinator for the City.
