Per various mailing lists, someone in Woodside is laying tacks on Kings Mountain Road, clearly to cause flats for cyclists. Flatting on that descent at speed would be "not good" Visible - 40 of the 43 tacks we encountered on the post-ride ride up King's Mtn Rd today - all in groups of 6-8 tacks, in the uphill bike lane. 1/4 - 1/3 mi apart, from 1/2 mi past Huddart Park Entrance up to 1/2 mi from Skyline Blvd - 7 groups of tacks total. Someone is sending bikers a "message" ... so let's be careful on that road. The 3 tacks that caused flats (me, and 2 other noon-Meetup riders) were tossed before we started collecting them for safety and evidence.
