  • Harvard Square Cambridge, MA - Mid-Cambridge
    The snow has not been removed from the Taxi stand, and therefore they are parking in the bike lane. This is illegal. Please remove the snow or ticket the Taxis.
  • 1563 Massachusetts 2a Mid Cambridge, MA - Cambridge
    This pothole is about 1' wide and 4 inches deep with very steep edges.
  • Bay State Ave. And Broadway Somerville, MA - Somerville
    Traffic on Broadway is fast and unforgiving. With the nearest crosswalks over two blocks away in either direction, people are forced to make mad, dangerous dashes across Broadway in order to reach the bus stop, laundromat, and quick mart located at this intersection.
  • 119-123 Harvard St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    Lazy motorists, especially MBTA bus drivers, have infringed upon this bike lane so often that it has been completely erased. This bend is narrow and the traffic is heavy, necessitating a bright, obvious lane designated for cyclists.
  • 220 234 Cambridge St Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    The eastbound lane of this street, specifically in the bike zone, is ground chuck. The potholes are so big that they will unseat a cyclist that doesn't have prior experience with this route. The holes continue all the way to the Cambridge line.
  • Brookline Street Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Cambridgeport

    "I know they are doing work on part of that street but @#$%, the rest of it doesn't need to be like a double black diamond mogul ski run. I f*ck up my car driving on it... I can't imagine being on a bike. "

    I've been down this road on a bike many a time. It may as well have a new tube dispenser at the end of the street. Pathetic.

  • Medford St Arlington, MA 02474, USA - Arlington
    This rotary exists in a highly populated area. People walk their children to the abutting playground through this rotary, people jog through, and pedestrians of all kinds must traverse this dangerous rotary without the aid or protection of crosswalks. How has this gone unnoticed and uncorrected for so long?
  • 152 166 Mountfort St Brookline, MA 02446, USA - Brookline
    My front wheel dove into this sinkhole just yesterday, nearly throwing me over my handlebars. Traffic is HEAVY in this area, making this an extremely dangerous hole for cyclists. Please raise and reset this grate.
  • 1556 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    This pothole is about 2 feet wide and 6 inches deep, with very sharp edges. Watch your tires!
  • 271 343 Cambridge St Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    This bridge is a late night hangout for the underage hipsters of Allston. The graffiti is rather charming, but the copious amounts of broken glass and bottle-ends is becoming a hazard for children and cyclists. This bridge either needs a debris sweep daily or more security overnight.
    Update: I spoke to a gentleman at MassDot who actually achieved some headway - the bridge is currently clean! If the situation devolves again, please call 617-635-7507 and report it.
  • Mass Ave prentiss st., Somerville, MA 02145, USA - Cambridge
    There are many potholes in this area that have become hidden by the rain. Mainly in the shared bike lane, these are very dangerous for both smaller cars and bikers.
  • 1430 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    This Taxi stand is constantly overflowing into the abutting bike lane. The stand is just around a blind corner, creating a very dangerous situation that drives cyclists into the road quickly and with no warning. Enforcement is needed.
  • 250 Willow Ave. Somerville, MA - Somerville
    The 'bike zone' of the northbound lane of Willow Ave is riddled with potholes bad enough to pop a tube, forcing cyclists to ride in the middle of an already too-narrow street. This is a highly dangerous area.
  • Oxford St. Cambridge, MA - Agassiz-Harvard
    Oxford Street has taken the gold medal for crappy asphalt in Cambridge MA for as long as I can remember, and now that the thaw is upon us, it's worse than ever. The street needs an entire re-pave job, and fast.
  • 618 Broadway Somerville, MA - Somerville
    There are three deep potholes in quick succession immediately on the East side of the train bridge. These potholes are in the middle of the bike lane, to boot, making a difficult area even more dangerous.
  • 81 Willow Ave Somerville, MA - Somerville
    traffic has completely worn away the bike lane on Willow Ave, just before Highland Ave intersection. This makes cycling very dangerous due to crowding by drivers illegally bisecting the end of this street, leaving no room for cyclists to enter the northern half of Willow Ave.
  • Cambridge St./Harvard Ave. Boston MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    These traffic lights are disregarded by motorists at all hours of the day. MBTA Route 66 busses do not stop at this red light at all. The left arrow directing traffic on to Harvard Ave. is entirely useless, since people will turn left during any light circumstance. A police patrol is needed at this intersection at all times until a better solution can be found.
