    Just heard about this. A new closed road event along similar lines to
    the Caledonia and Hibernia events. I'm tempted to have a go at this, it
    is not as far to travel as Pitlochry :).

    Watch out for the tin tacks ;-)

    I did the Etape Caledonia the year after the tin tack attack without any
    issues.

    Someone even spread tacks on part of the Hull Skyride circuit, but it
    was right next to a bike repair workshop, not at a point furthest
    away, so they hadn't really thought things through properly.

    Well if their aim is merely to cause inconvenience and disruption then
    it doesn't really matter where they spread them, the objective is to
    cause damage.

    Hmmm, spread outside a bike repair shop, that's an interesting
    coincidence. :)
