Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton has hit out at the state of Britain’s roads – saying potholes are putting cyclists in danger.
Pendleton, 30, from Wilmslow, is backing a campaign to encourage councils to repair ravaged streets.
As reported in the M.E.N, a table by the national cyclists organisation – the CTC – showed nine out of Greater Manchester’s 10 local authorities had repaired fewer than half of potholes reported in the last year.
They didn’t know where it had come from, who had made it or what it was for. But it was pretty, so they left it there and admired it.
Until the day it split open.
