This round about is a danger especially when traveling in the direction to Bedworth Town from Nuneaton. I am a cyclist and I know that someone has been hit off their bike in the past due to driver error however, the cylist had great difficulty in contollling his cycle away from the impeading vehicle as the road is in a very poor condition this accident happend in 2010 and is on YouTube. I travel this way to work and always worry about the bumps as it's very hard to control your cycle ober these bumps even for suspension cycles. I do not understand that when they repaired the road near Tesco why this roundabout was not also fixed. It is one of the main ways to and from Nuneaton and the Bermuda Estate. A car would definately have difficulty in emergency braking over these huge bumps and dips in the road. I know this has been like this for MANY YEARS! If I fall off my cylcle or damage it crossing the roundabout I will sue the council for any personal injury and any other damage done to my cycle and anything I am carrying. It is totally unacceptable. I have been meaning to report this and get a good picture. This is not always possible as it is a very very busy area. What do I pay tax for? We the people expect all roads to be in good satisfactory and safe condition for ALL road users. There are a number of potholes on both routes to and from Bermuda Ind Estate (drain by carwash - tesco side and going to Nuneaton at the bustop and further on by a drain on the same side oppersite Alf Englands and One Stop). I cannot stop to take pictures and upload them as there is always a lot of traffic on this road when I'm travelling. I expect a speedy resolution to this problem as I know the road has been like this easily for over 5 years and longer. It is worse than it shows on the picture. A bump then a dip then a bum into a dip... And so on. It is NOT acceptable. I know the councils do have money for road repairs it was on the news. Swerving around potholes is very dangerous for cyclists. It's only a matter of time someone gets hurt. Also between Griff in and The Giffin on the way to Nuneaton there are lots of stones and debry that needs cleaning up again its very dagerous it can cause the cycle to loose contol, chip my paint work and it also has been mounting up over the years. Do we not use road sweepers no more? What happend to that equipment? Where has it gone? Why is it not being used? And if it is being used why not more regularly aspecially after such adverse snow fall. It's common sense it it not? Maybe I need to work for the council! The road is not satifactorally maintained and it should be as it's a major road through Bedworth and Nuneaton.
