Residents complained about problems caused by flooding after heavy rainfall hit Lancashire for the third day in a row.
People have put out sandbags to protect their houses in Broughton, near Preston.
Steve Billington, 57, said water was approaching his house in Garstang Road for the third time since the stretch was made part of the new Preston Guild Wheel route.
The driving instructor said: “I’m a bit tired after manning the barricades last night.
“We’ve gone to extreme measures of covering the boiler in cling film.
“It’s in our utility room and last time we had a flood, water got in and it cost us around £200 to get it repaired.
“I’ve been chasing Lancashire County Council for years to solve this problem.
“If you were planning on cycling the Guild Wheel route this morning you might change your mind.”
Paul Dunne, the county council’s highways manager, said it had tackled the issue by clearing out blockages in the culvert, which included an excavation to remove tree roots, and replacing grates to let more surface water get away, which solved the problem in the short term.
He said: “Mr Billington was advised to contact us if he had any further problems. Following a recent further approach, we have committed to carry out a CCTV camera survey to see if there are any other blockages in the culvert so we can determine who is responsible for any damaged section.
“Once this has been done we will be in a better position to know how to proceed.”
On Friday highways chiefs said they were investigating why it was taking so long for water to escape into underground drains and sewers in Higher Croft, Penwortham.
But yesterday resident Peter Vickers, 62, said: “On Tuesday, United Utilities cleared Higher Croft of the flooding. I woke up this morning and we are flooded again, which means Shirley Walker, who is disabled and in a wheelchair, cannot get out of her bottom flat again. This is the third time in six days.”
