Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a cy­clist was scratched on both arms by barbed wire strung across a Don Val­ley trail on Mon­day, send­ing rip­ples of concern through the Toronto cy­cling com­mu­nity.

John Lo­braico was cy­cling in the trail system when, ac­cord­ing to the in­sta­gram ac­count of Cy­cle So­lu­tions in the Beaches, the bike store where he works, he en­coun­tered ra­zor blades and barbed wire ob­struct­ing the trail on the last down­hill sec­tion just be­fore Bayview Ave. and Pottery Rd. Cy­cle So­lu­tions posted a photo of the in­juries to Lo­braico’s arms on their In­sta­gram ac­count to warn fel­low bik­ers of po­ten­tial dan­ger on the trails. In their In­sta­gram story, they con­firmed that the wire­had been taken down.
