Re: Riding when the road is wet?

I've rode in the pouring rain once on purpose. It was quite an interesting experience. You just have to be smooth on everything like others have said. I can't wait to try riding in the wet on the track .

Re: Riding when the road is wet?

Agree what with everyone is saying about being smooth in the rain and braking early and what not. I try to avoid getting stuck in it but it does happen. Just be cautious when riding, they're alot of bad drivers out there and they seem to come out more in the rain, especially in so cal
