City work crews were to inspect the new O’Connor Street bike lane Monday after a cyclist had her tired flattened by tacks strewn on the pavement over the weekend.

Cyclist Catherine Laska was riding home from a Halloween party at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday when she ran over the tacks on O’Connor near Gilmour and Gloucester streets. Laska stopped when she heard her tire making clicking noises and found three tacks embedded in the tire.
