      I just finished the course online and thought it was fantastic! I understand that when going into a turn, you should brake/slow into the turn until you are happy with your speed and direction, maintain your speed, wait until you reach that decision point where you can see your exit point, take away lean angle, then accelerate.

      The question I have is this:
      When you are riding downhill on a curvy road, what do you do if your speed increases while traveling in a downhill turn?

        If you trail brake, your speed will not increase.

          If the increase in speed makes you nervous, then apply the brake until you are happy with your speed and direction.
