Oh dear, the moralising & haterz of stw have appeared.
The pothole in question was unknown to me, under a puddle, and unavoidable at the time as the rest of the (shared) path was occupied by pedestrians.

This must be a troll??
Agree with jim and br. Bet if it was out on a trail you'd shrug it off as unfortunate and put it down to user error but here it has to be someoen else's fault
Well duh! Of course I would! A trail is a trail. A cyclepath is made to standards and is meant to be safe and encourage cycling. The 2 could not be more diffeernt.
I am out £130, and this would have been higher had I not done the work myself to save costs. There are recognised standards that cyclepaths are to be made to. This clearly failed. There were other issues with it that I know have caused accidents for other cyclists. COEC have so far told me to "do one" (and told me the kerb presents no issues) despite me telling them I'd accept a good offer.
I'm only claiming less than a monthly Coundil tax payment back, why should they get away with not having cyclpaths that are safe?
