Cyclists were in uproar after a ‘mean-spirited’ saboteur started puncturing their tyres by scattering pins on the biking highway outside Bermondsey underground.
Lydia Maxwell, founder of a dog-walking business that ferries pooches around in cargo bikes, said the mystery yob had been a thorn in her wheels.
“I’m running a small business. Replacing my tyres definitely digs into my bottom line,” she said.
“But it’s more of a dent in morale knowing that somebody out there wants to hurt you.”
The handfuls of pins are usually left strewn on the Jamaica Road cycle lane that opened in 2020.
While a boon to cyclists, it has been criticised by some motorists who say it’s worsened congestion.
Local police say they will “keep an eye out” for the unknown individual – who has waged the bizarre campaign for two years.
