- !! !! WARNING !! !! TRAPS AROUND HOPE VALLEY
For all those riding near and around the beast any time soon. I passed through this morning and was all clear. But returning through the same area about 5 hours later, found that some GRADE A F##K WIT!! had pulled logs and branches across bridleways everywhere, built dry stone walls IN the exits of corners! and worst of all, A F##KING WIRE STRUNG AT HEAD HIGHT BETWEEN AN OPEN GATE !!!! I took that one down, but can’t say if there’s any more in the area, Watch out!Posted 6 years agotreehugger35Member
This sort of thing infuriates me! We have unts doing the same on our local trails all the time, and our guide in Les Arcs last year sliced his neck on some electric fence while which was tied accross a trail and he now has a massive scar! Isn’t the trail in question an official bike route?Posted 6 years agosmell_itMember
Devils advocate- maybe a walker(s) had a close shave with some mtb’ers or MX riders and decided to ‘get even’?
🙄 yeah, a car cut me up on my ride into work, so I’ve cut all the brake lines on all the vehicles in our car park. That’ll learn them. Nothing justifys putting wire across a trail, no matter how hard you try and troll.Posted 6 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
This is the unhinged thing isn’t it. Why do people generally do unhinged things? Answer: because they’re basically unhinged. Why did Harold Shipman murder all those old biddies? People spend ages trying to think of a rational explanation, but fundamentally he was crackers. There is no sane reason to murder lots of elderly women.
Whoever did this was most likely quietly nuts in their own way. Or, more charitably, too stupid to comprehend the potential consequences of their actions. Trying to explain their actions in terms of rationality is a waste of time ime.Posted 6 years agonickcSubscriber
Got to agree with the Dog here, seem these around the Chilterns and trying to work out why your form of enjoying the country side so upsets someone else so much that they set traps that include neck high wire is like trying to argue with a daffodil, report to the cops.Posted 6 years agoRogan JoshMember
I’ve found a couple of planks if wood burried in mud and soul with 9″ nails sticking upwards between Grizedale and Hawkshead, supposedly to give punctures. Annoying as it is, and my mate ripped open a brand new tyre, it’s also somewhere I run and I shudder at the thought of two 9″ nails through a foot… Verging on permanent injury I’d say.Posted 6 years agodobiejessmoMember
Someone did this years ago in the Forest Of Dean they made a mantrap dug a hole then covered it up with branches and leaves and mud.Mate came ripping down there and fell in hole split all is chin open loads of stitches.Now the same area is full of cyclist no hassle.So that nutter has disappeared thank goodness.Posted 6 years ago
