On the evening of 25th January on my cycle home from work, I was cycling down Kaurilands Road and I cycled over what appears to be a new pothole caused by some new road repairs outside number 86. For a car, this pothole wouldn't cause any problems but for me as a cyclist, it nearly killed me as it nearly threw me off my bike under a car that was passing me at the time I hit the pothole. It was just luck that I managed to stay on my bike and not fall off. This pot hole is particularly dangerous it occurs after a prolonged downhill on a smooth road surface and I would estimate that I was travelling at at least 25kmh at the time this happened.
