But cycling to work on Tuesday 27/5, I was distracted while cycling along a short section of paved road in Ferndale Road approaching Glen Iris Road. I hit the very nasty small speed hump there and came down hard on my right shoulder.
I have had some helpful suggestions about using trainer wheels, slowing down and stopping cycling. I raced pushbikes on the road for over 10 years (one crash, wheel slipped on wet corner) and I have commuted for over 30 years with about 3 crashes and 2 serious injuries (both this year).
I was travelling at 14km/h. The speed hump does not comply with Australian Design specifications and should be replaced as it is unsafe.

Not good, really not good . . .
