Another possible “tacking” incident has been reported, this time, however, the tacks were discovered on the west side of Gates Pass Road.
Cyclist Adam Kroger sent a message to our Facebook page saying he picked up several tacks on Gates Pass Road. Kroger said he was riding up the backside of Gates Pass toward Tucson on Tuesday, June 11 when he he noticed several tacks in his tires as he was descending into Tucson.
The timing is interesting as Tuesday morning is the day a large group of cyclists ride though the area, which has caused some animosity between cyclists and motorists.
Kroger suggested it might be worth inspecting your tires before beginning the descent.
