Fill that pothole

fillthatholeAs a regular cyclist you have to be very aware of not only the traffic around you but also the condition of the road ahead, an unseen pothole could cause serious damage to your bike or even you. Your local council has a duty to make sure that dangerous potholes and damage to road surfaces are repaired, but obviously they need to know about the damage before they can do anything about it. That’s where a new web site set up by the CTC comes in, fillthathole.org.uk has been set up so you can easly mark the location of the damage on a map, generate it’s grid reference you then write a description and this is sent to the relevent council by CTC. There is also a companion site for off road cyclists called ClearThatTrail.org.uk. I’ve already logged one pothole on the A91 and will probably log more soon.
