All along the top of the Summit road are flax bushes near the road. Much though I like flax they are a very real hazard to cyclists as the fronds can wrap around the handlebars and pull you off your bike, as nearly happened to me. Ordinarily this is not a problem, but if cars pass they can force you to the edge of the road. With Le Race coming up, there will be a large number of cyclists, and they are not permitted to cross the white line, so many will be forced to keep left. Please trim these plants back a metre from the edge of the road, before Le Race (21st March). Also sweep all the shingle off the orad, remnant from the roadworks.
