Barry Jones claims that the road between the M25 and the B186 might be the worst road in Havering for cyclists.

A Hornchurch resident shared footage of himself cycling down a hazardous road to highlight the dangers for cyclists and drivers.

Barry Jones, 42, from Brendans Close, regularly cycles down the long road between the M25 and the B186 towards Ockendon.

He told the Recorder: “It’s quite a regular road for any cyclist and it’s been like that for the past couple years.

“[The potholes in the road] mean that when cars are behind me, I’m having to go onto the right-hand side of the road.

“You’re putting the drivers at risk and you’re putting yourself in danger.”

Barry explained that a set of bicycle tyres can cost from £400 to £500, and because they are so expensive he is reluctant to cycle into the potholes.

“It’s just a shame. I enjoy cycling and it’s good for fitness,” he added.

“I think it’s probably the worst road in Havering.”
