(Continued)

DENVER, Ind. —

Breakaway Bike shop also shipped up tubes and repair kits to get everyone back on the road.

"Everyone helped everyone," she said. "No one was left behind. It was fantastic support by the riders and the community."

Zach See said most bikers ended up finishing the ride despite the sabotaged trail.

And if deputies discover the person responsible for what he calls the "tack attack," Zach See said he would say this to them: "Why? What did you think you’d accomplish? What you intended to hurt us only brought us together and made us stronger."
