Cllr Mike Sole is calling on KCC to prioritise the filling of potholes on National Cycle Routes. 

Mike says “I am a regular cyclist and getting more people out on bikes has huge health and environmental benefits. 

I have ridden part of national cycle route 17 from Bridge, along Pett Bottom Road. This a national cycle but it is full of deep, dangerous potholes. Any cyclist hitting one of these at speed could have a serious accident.

Whilst acknowledging the huge problems in maintaining our many country lanes, when it comes to national cycle routes, Kent County Council are failing. This is why I am asking them to prioritise the repairs of potholes on all national cycle routes throughout Kent so that we can all ride safely.”
