Hazard Type Pothole
Hazard Description Two very deep holes on the corner as you turn in to the road. Since there is a long steep downhill stretch leading up to this cyclists tend to arrive at this point at some speed. I was very nearly thrown off my bike and I am having to negotiate with great care. It is unfortunate that two holes make threading a route so challenging.
