I have had to cycle through two floods over the last couple of days on my commute to work. Both are on unlit country lanes. The first was yesterday in the morning there was only one cage around, they were going the same way as me and slowed down so I had cleared the flood before they entered it. On the way home I saw some headlights coming down the road towards me but the other side of the flood. I was nearer the flood than the car so took the centre of the road where the water was shallowest and hoped the car would slow down and maybe wait. Oh no, they didn't slow down, I had enough space to head left and just got the edge of the wave as they went past. When I cleared the water I looked round to see the car going very slowly and jerking or kangarooing along Today there was no traffic around this flood and it had receded so no problem. Coming home the road was flooded in a different part of the journey, at the bottom of a short, steep hil, where I try and get up speed for the long slog up the other side of the river. I saw the flood late and managed to change down gears just as I entered the water. The large 4x4 coming the other way stopped and waited for me to pass through the flood before they set off. The overshoes worked well! What experience do others have of riding through floods?
