Why does this happen? Static friction is not strong enough to keep your tires from slipping on the pavement. OK, let’s say you are riding your bike around a level curve and your maximum speed is v when the radius of the curve is R. Here are a couple of multiple choice questions: 1) What is your maximum speed if the radius of the curve is 2R?

A diagram may help. friction View from above Notice that the friction force points toward the center of the curve. It is the centripetal force.
