speed bumps slow down bikes too!
I had never ridden over a speed bump in the street before that required me to slow down
until yesterday. Doing 27 mph (down hill) went over a posted bump and felt like I might
lose control for a second or two. I guess it was not good for the bike also. You never get too old to learn something new.
You definitely need to unweight and if you do it a fraction of a second too soon or too late, it can be a problem. Be careful!
Thats incredible !
27 MPH and hit a speed bump, your lucky, Richard

Those who are in one piece and stretch over the entire width of the road mostly have sloping edges towards the sides and I allways try to hit them on that spot
