At least ten people got flat tires from tacks on Mount Lemmon Highway this morning.

Several cyclists stopped at a nearby bike shop to get supplies after getting a flat tire. One cyclist said he was riding in a group that had seven people who got flats.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department┬áresponded┬áto a call about the tacks between 8-9 a.m. According the the Sheriff’s Department the deputy that responded could not find any tacks on the road.

Did you ride out there today? Did you see the tacks?

@LuisE_Lemus Sounds like it was somewhere between Houghton and the base. Glad you didn't get tacked.
