According to the Daily Mail, the mum-of-three was riding with a friend when she hit the water-filled hole which the council was supposed to resurface before Christmas.
The work was postponed after a request from a nearby farm which sells Christmas trees.

An ambulance, paramedic support officer and air ambulance were called but Mrs Vanloo died at the scene.
The Leamington Courier reports that the driver of the car was treated for shock, while Kate's friend did not require medical attention.
Neil Adkins, 55, who runs a campsite in Napton, told the Daily Mail: "Road closure signs went up last month, but then nothing happened.
"The incident was just a tragic accident. If it wasn't for the pothole the lady would never have come off the bike, as I understand it. The car driver wasn't to blame."
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "When crews arrived on scene they discovered a cyclist lying in the road following a collision with a car.
"Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that due to the serious injuries suffered in the incident, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead at the scene."
