The party will soon be over for bicyclists damaging Cobble Hill's cenotaph.

Area director Gery Giles learned of the chipped-stone damage just after Sunday's Remembrance Day service.

Now she aims to have a metal chain, or other safeguards, installed to keep disrespectful bikes off the sacred war monument being damaged by metal pedals and other bike parts.

Other ideas to physically fix the vandalism may come from talking to folks in other cites dealing with damaged stone monuments.

Giles was also said a nearby barber regularly warns jumping riders away from the four-sided, stepped cenotaph.
