Woo hoo! I managed to get a double snake-bite (first ever double) on this pothole, so glad to see it on the Top 10 list!
Actually, I think the markings have been made by the Grizzly Peak Cylists in advance of their Century each year. Doubtful that the city is marking them with those big orange chevrons! But it would be nice if the city would patch them. ;-(
GPS gives the location of this pothole as 11 Shetland Court. It is NOT on Shetland Court; it is on Skyline Blvd just north of the intersection with Grass Valley Road. If Shetland Court were extended to intersect with Skyline, that would be the approximate location of the pothole. There is a second, smaller pothole about 30 feet downhill from this one.
The bike was removed over last weekend. Don't know whether it was removed by the owner or by someone else. Report can now be closed.
Work completed last year. Thank you.
As a board member of Bike East Bay, I've checked with several who have access to databases, etc. and will continue to monitor. I'd agree with you that it's "obviously stolen," but it's been there for 3 weeks with a weak cable and yet hasn't been removed. Might actually benefit the owner if it's removed by the city before someone simply comes along and cuts the cable. If you have access to local email groups, please post it.
There are a number of instances of broken pavement in the stretch of Skyline between the EBMUD reservoir and Joaquin Miller Road. A couple have been poorly patched, but most remain open and some have increased in size. Additionally, patches that were previously made on the two switchbacks are starting to deteriorate and could soon present a hazard to bicyclists. Most of the spots are in the downhill lane, thus presenting a greater hazard to bicyclists, especially in the shaded areas where they are difficult to see at any distance.
120 Days now and nothing yet done.
More broken pavement further downhill.
