Potholes

Potholes are annoying and dangerous for cyclists;  especially in or after heavy rain when they can look like harmless puddles – I’m not going to rant about it here because it’s self-explanatory. I discovered this brilliant website today : http://www.fillthathole.org.uk from CTC (the UK National Cyclist’s Association). It uses simple forms and a map so you can quickly report potholes in the road (it even works out which local authority to send the info to).  The particular tarmac-abberation which was the target of my wrath today managed to throw me forward into my handlebars last week and bruise myself. Nasty, bad pothole.

  1. The hole I reported has been fixed!! Ok, it may have been filled in with what looks like scrapings from under the wheel arch of an HGV, but at least it’s been done! I’m impressed, that website works 🙂
