German police seek bike-hating bend boobytrapper

Published: 18 November 2011

German Police are appealing for information leading to the arrest of a bike-hating boobytrapper who's been lacing bends with oil and gravel.

There's been a spate of what are thought to be deliberate oil spills at critical points on popular biking routes, with one rider being fatally injured as a result, says Motorrad.

The latest incident involves thick gravel strips strategically placed across both carriageways in three corners. It comes just a fortnight after it emerged several riders had been hurt after riding into barbed wire strung at chest height across trails in a German forest.
