Cannock Trails warning again.

It would appear that trail fairy's have been putting wire across the trails again. Following a local riders FB post this week. Don't know which bits, but looks to be fairly flat bit. Luckily the wire wasn't neck height this time. Rider is OK but a bit battered and bruised. Old Bill informed and obstruction obviously removed.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

  • There was wire across a shared use path in Flintshire that injured a cyclist recently too. :'(

    The cretins setting these traps need a severe penalty if found guilty, effectively it's attempted manslaughter.

    effectively it's attempted manslaughter.

    You can't have attempted manslaughter!
    Manslaughter is killing someone with an unlawful action not intended to cause serious harm or death, so you can't set out to attempt it.

    It is either attempted murder, or carrying out an act likely to cause serious harm.
