Road Name Hellpool Lane
Hazard Type Surface poorly restored after roadworks
Hazard Description There are potholes all over the road along with rough road surface making it extremely dangerous for cyclists. I crashed descending down the road trying to avoid all the potholes but you have to swerve all over the road to try and avoid them as they are so numerous. You are also forced onto the wrong side of the road to avoid them. They have been previously repaired but to such a poor standard.
