Going to SF: Discovery Kingdom on highway 12, west bound maybe 15-20 miles before fairfield I think, there's these like 35-60 foot or so rolling hills. If you speed trough them you can get some form of lift going but not enough to sustain it for more then a split second. It's a horrible idea though given Highway 12 has been called "Blood Alley" for a reason given it's mostly 2-lane highway with no dividers. Think that's in reference to people trying to pass and getting creamed by a on coming car or worse yet, semi.

There are two sections of road that I know about locally that give some air. There's an intersection in the northern part of Gainesville (I believe it was 6th St and 39th Ave) that provided a small pop when taken at speed, and outside of town on the way to Williston there is a railway crossing that also gives a nice pop of airtime.

2 weeks ago when I was in Colombia visiting the family, I went on a bus to return home. The roads there are crap and the suspension on the buses are terrible, and it doesn't help that they drive like mad over there. Anyway, the bus i was on was going over a bridge which had some bumps and cracks on a section where it seemed as if they were too lazy to fill the gap where they put it in as sections when building it. The driver was going quick, and as soon as we reached the gap, the back of the bus flung into the air. I was sitting in the back so that didn't help matters. I was in mid air for a good 1.5 seconds and as soon as my backside hit the plastic chairs we were sitting on, it made a loud slap. I was surprised my back didn't hurt after that, but by far that was the most airtime I have experienced on public transport.

 

Here's a video very similar to what i experienced.
