Cycling in Sydney Australia
Bunny hop them! Or slow down... the idea is to slow traffic including you I expect.
We have trouble with councils removing traffic calming measures, since we then get racing car behaviour which is more dangerous than the speedbumps.
Is this it? Link why wouldn't you ride around it?
Also there is a posted 25kph speed limit so you will have a hard time proving your case since you were going quite fast over it.
the corner area of that speed bump is very dangerous for cyclists. especially when wet. have several in Balmain.
They are on my commute but I've never riden over them due to the space on either side of them. I personally dont like the bumps at middle head just before the lookout / fort thingo. Cant be avoided unless you go off road and they are not gentle.
Is this the culprit?
If that's it, must be said that it looks pretty benign, and easily ridden over or around at the advisory speed of 25kph.
Maybe inattentiveness played a part?
Here's a better view. Note the 50kmh limit almost five paces in front of the 25km advisory!
