November 26/10 14:33 pm - Sabotage to Bridges on the Don Valley Mountain Bike Trail


Posted by Editoress on 11/26/10
 

Warning to all Cyclists - Bridges on the Don Valley Mountain Bike Trail have been sabotaged. Please inspect all bridges before proceeding.!!

Bridge was cut partially through in Four places and appeared undamaged from above. The fall from this Bridge is Nine to 16 Ft, depending on which side you fell from!!! The Bridge was left in this condition to deliberately injure riders.

-from the very fine consistency of the sawdust it appears a battery operated Sawsall was used.
-Entry and Exit were on foot. ( see below )

Two sets of tire tracks crossed the bridge and a set of shoe prints were found on the slope at the west end of the Bridge. I tracked these approx. 2 Km, and found the Two cyclists, they accompaned me back to the Bridge and helped me safely bring the bridge down. The Bridge sections are still in the ravine and will be repaired by volunteers in the coming days.
