aside from the sharp objects, the 'rudimentary walls' and sticks look like fun!

in seriousness though this is a growing problem, there are some sh1tty people out there.

In reply to Chive Talkin\':

Thing is these traps could affect anyone, a fell runner could just as easily trip and fall onto the nails. 

It's not a cycling problem, it's a general public problem. 

This comes from someone who drives and walks far more than they cycle but because I own a bike I'm the token cyclist at work.

I remember years back when I used to cycle a lot around the peak district this sort of this was happening all the time. Lady Cannings plantation was especially dangerous with random obstacles built in the trails and wire trained between trees.

It's crazy isn't it.  I can't quite get my head around the evilness of some people doing stuff like that.

This occasionally happens at Attenborough nature reserve. Its almost always dogs or pedestrians who get hurt
