MONTEZUMA, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have asked a homeowner in Montezuma to back off after a homemade speed bump caused minor injuries to several cyclists and damaged two bikes.

Summit County Interim Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons says deputies found plastic pipes and rubber hoses that formed a makeshift barrier near the home of a disgruntled homeowner.

Several bicyclists had to pay for repairs that cost up to $500. The helmet of one cyclist was cracked, but no serious injuries were reported.

According to the Summit Daily (https://tinyurl.com/huo94he ), the homeowner was ordered to remove the barrier and talk with officials about building a legal speed bump with the county for next summer.

Bicyclists are also being asked not to interfere with traffic.
