Broughton lane, heading towards Aylesbury.

Reported in the Road surface category anonymously at 22:01, Thu 3 October 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

The long/thin/deep divot won’t make a massive difference to most people but it will fit a road bike wheel in exactly... my wheel became stuck in this at approx 20mph, sending me over my handlebars at pace.

I was lucky not to be seriously hurt or run over. My bike got off much worse than me. This needs to be rectified ASAP otherwise I fear someone will end up much worse off than me.
