  • This pothole is VERY DANGEROUS. I cycled down this short steep road yesterday 26 July, and as I took avoiding action to miss this very deep & large pothole by moving to the right, a 4x4 vehicle came up the other way; we just managed to not collide, I just squeezed down the side of the car; I was not going fast, but downhill braking is never the best scenario. Please fix this asap, it is a popular route for cyclists and someone is going to get hurt.
