Kingwood Drive Westbound just before 59

this road crack doesn't seem too scary, until your front tire gets sucked down into it and throws you and your passenger 40 yards

size of the crack:
8" wide
5" deep
30 yds long

dixie farm rd heading east between 518 and 45 has some pretty hard bumps. One in particular I always watch for in the right lane. You can usually see cars avoiding it as well.

Kirkwood is the sux on bike or in car...but it's the only road that has the least traffic at quiting time.

Might be a correlation there


Lso, Allen parkway is awesome, you just have. To know how to avoid the big bumps...and whatch out for that grooved payment on the right hand turn a little before shepherd...

THat stuff just keeps messing with me. i HATE those big ole gaps n cracks. I dart across those things like a crazy man on the highway trying to swtich 4 lanes cause money ain't a thang'

I may sounds like , but a decent chunk of the 290 HOV lane blows from about tidwell to 1960 with a wavy concrete and nice long stretches of a 2 inch gap in the MIDDLE of the road for miles

Report it to 311

Houston 311 (link)

If you report it they will fix it. Make sure you note in your report that it's a dangerous and hazardous condition to bicyclists and motorcyclists.
