“ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE?”
Yes I tried to ride over each rumble strip on the route again this year. On 700C x 28s. Some rumble strips were barely there while a few were expectantly rougher that normal. And I did miss a few. I had no flats and no crashes. I did see many close calls where riders would swerve to miss them both left and right. It was almost comical to hear so many riders worried about my safety when I rode right up the middle. I certainly don’t recommend anyone else to ride the rumbles unless they are prepared. But it proves you can ride across rumble strips and survive.
