Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 16:43, Fri 15 October 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A narrow pothole running across the lane AND another more regular shaped pothole adjoining it. Both of these are relatively small - but I am not reporting them to amuse myself, I'm reporting them because they are both very dangerous to cyclists as they are on a downhill. Any cyclist that hit's them will do so with a great deal of force. Please just come along and squirt a bit of tarmac down, and please please don't make a big deal out of this - they are extremely dangerous and need fixing. Please reply giving a clear and unambiguous indication that you will make them safe. There's a whole community of cyclists that are heartily sickened by some of the vague and evasive replies from you when we are taking the trouble to report hazards. The potential insurance payout for a serious accident must surely focus your minds on fixing dangerous potholes.
