hitting standing water?

Is there any good way to approach standing water when riding a bike? Its happened to me once on 288, came over the overpass and water was all the way across the road. I just held my speed leaned back a prayed to sweet baby Jesus not to crash. Luckily the bike slid a bit then grabbed and I went on my way.

Yeah deffinately a bad feeling knowing your and to eat and not be able to do anything about it. I was afraid If I hit either brake the bike would slid, so I was hoping that what my dad told me about keeping the front light and weight on the back tire when I rode MX would follow over to the street

i attempted the same thing when i had my little get-off....unfortunately it doesn't work that well when the water is 10 to 12 inches deep...

Bunny hop it.


I maintain the same speed; I would think too little weight on the front could cause a washout especially when in a turn and if there is a potential hydroplane.

Bikes are self correcting in a slide. The key is to be loose on the bars! Keep the bike as upright as possible, and just like a car, try to maintain speed. Having ridden a trackday in the wet, I can say that there's traction even with water.
