Hazard Description Hole is 2m in length at it's deepest and considerable longer overall. Width is 6-10cm and it is several cms deep. Specifically it is exactly the right size to grab the front wheel of a bike and catapult you into oncoming traffic as happened to me. Being fairly narrow it is especially difficult to spot. This hole is on a very fast decent.

Approximate Depth 10-15cm
Approximate distance from Kerb 50cm - exact;y where a cycle would position itself
