Barbed wire has been stretched at the entrance to a bike trail near Crewe in Cheshire, U.K.
A Reddit user posted a photo of the wire with the caption “They don’t like us bikers up here!” They added that they believed the trail was on council land, not private property.
“More like he’s claimed this land but actually it’s councils,” wrote the cyclist. “Been through the drama already with it. They really aren’t bothered it seems. We tried to get it resolved without any progress despite this.”
This is not the first attempt to sabotage cyclists in the UK in recent years. Last November, a mountain biker in South Wales shared a photo on Facebook of seven sizeable stakes driven into the ground at a dangerous angle on a trail in nearby Delamere Forest.
