Post subject:  WARNING: Idiots in Hamsterley Forest roping up trees

Someone has tied a rope across trees in hamsterley forest. It looks like the rider was ok, but it could have been worse.

Attention all users of Descend Bike Park

In an incident on Sunday 05/02/2012 at 1200hrs, a local rider was deliberately clothes lined from his bike by blue corded rope stretched across the track between two trees on the bottom of the main line (out of the steep drops and prior to the last table top). By rights, this rider should have received serious injuries, possibly fatal.
We stress, this is a pure attempt to seriously injure users of the facility.

Due to this incident we must advise that all riders check the tracks before use (even though management check the trails daily). We cannot risk another incident of this nature as next time it could be a whole lot worse.

The police are now involved and are investigating this matter, due to it seriousness.

We now want anyone with any info at all to come forward or contact Craig at Descend on the normal number. This trap was laid between the hours of 1500hrs and 1700hrs on Sat 04/03/2012 or between 0700hrs and 1000hrs on Sunday 05/02/2012.

Can anyone who had a conflict with any members of the public on the track on either the Saturday or the Sunday morning please come forward as this could be very important to the investigation. A substantial reward is being offered by Descend to anyone who has any info which leads to an arrest. Please help by copying this post to your own Facebook.
