  • Has anyone else noticed how rubbish Borough High Street is? I mean the actual street itself. There's hole and bad repair jobs all over it. You spend your whole time whilst riding down it trying to slalom round gashed in the tarmac, only to fail and end up having your seat smashed up your arse like a pneumatic drill.

    I would like to present Borough High Street as the worst piece of road in London.

    Has anyone got a challenger to the title?

  • Pretty bad grammar too matey! :)

  • Uxbridge Rd.

    There was something about fish and vaginas, and then reconstituted potato, and I just kind of zoned out.

  • Shoreditch High St:

  • Peckham Hill street

  • vallance road, northbound between the A11 and cheshire street

  • Kilburn High Road!

  • Oxford St on a Sunday:

  • All of the above are shite and I'd be inclined to agree with the OP, Borough High Street is awful but there are some parts of the Walworth Road that rival it, the tarmac is so warped and there are a large number of sunken drain covers/storm drains.

  • clarence avenue, just before the junction with poynders road SW

  • i do the 6pm slalom down borough high st as well (sth bound). looks a bit like this

  • I've got great grammar! Although reading the original post back I " There's hole and bad repair jobs all over it." is not an awesome sentence and I'm not sure about my frivolous use of the word gash.

    And I suppose "smashed up your arse like a pneumatic drill" was a little over the top.

  • @ fatboyralph

    Thats the section just before you get to the church opposite the tube is it not?
    I fear for my rims on that section of road.

  • This is Brick Lane, my friend:

  • Lumpy..

  • map it out people, this isn't the 20th century!

    Hillbilly and I had a chat about this after the TT Royale and there's a couple of seriously bad sunken drain covers that have appeared relatively recently..

    Considering how much they paid for the redevelopment and how recent it was it must weight it as the worst road in the South East at least..

  • 'You spend your whole time whilst riding down it trying to slalom round **gashed in the tarmac'

    **is quite nice too! ;)

  • See what I mean: fish and vaginas.

    My rear wheel fell foul of one of those, and resulted in a dent in the braking surface of my rear rim.

    Maybe we should target Boris with all the dented rims and play hoopla and before you say it, I know he's not directly responsible but a scapegoat is needed.

    I hate cycling up the Walworth road, there is one bit by Burgess park where it is literally a crater.
