Word of Warning: Clerkenwell Road‘s surface is dreadful.
- Westbound (i.e. uphill) the road surface is cracked, potholed and undulated.
- Eastbound (downhill) most of the drains and manhole covers have sunk well into the road surface creating a horribly bumpy and rather painful ride.
Also, look out for the two zebra crossings. This road has a lot of pedestrians and few of them are looking before they step out. If you’re weaving for a more comfortable ride then you’ll be less alert too.
