One of the bikers told WalesOnline: “As i came back I was talking to the police and some local witnesses. There are potholes in the road along the line that a motorcyclist would take.”
He added that he believe the potholes had been there for some time.
“Turns out that his wheel has hit one of the potholes and he has ended up on the floor. Locals tell me that these potholes have been here for a few months and nothing has been done about them.
“It is really bad for cyclists and motorcyclists.”
