Must be a big pothole outbound on 5th in the center of the right most lane somewhere before Shady (or maybe even before Highland.. I don’t recall). The storm drains weren’t working last night and the road was covered in an inch of water. I didn’t see it even after I hit it, but I sure felt it. Knocked the lights off my bike too.
Anyone ever invoice the city for a new wheel?
If anyone happens to commute down 5th, snap a photo for me. I’d like to see what I hit (and report it to 311).
All of Penn Ave in Garfield going into town. It’s been that way for a long time and I hope they’re going to do some work on that when the weather breaks. I guess there are more pressing things to spend money on in Garfield, though.
The one I hit was near Collage on 5th, outbound. Kind of on the right half of the right most lane. It is very deep, maybe only 2′ across though. Not sure how I managed not to get my front wheel stuck in it.
@karenin I heard rumors that they were going to repave Penn through Garfield last summer… obviously didn’t happen. I actually take Coral on my commute down to the cemetery because between traffic, potholes, ridged pavement and car doors I can’t stand that part of penn ave.
