For those who got the impression that I like to perform stunts on my bike: I do like to take it to extremes, but within reason, and not in front of public. Here I was definitely not 'stunting' or being an idiot. I was on the way to work... it had been raining the whole week and the road was wet, wind was fairly strong but there was no rain. If any of you are familiar with Melbourne's roads: I was riding on Lakeside drive in Southbank. The road has very progressive / gradual curves but nothing sharp. I was riding about 55km/h when suddenly I felt the bike begin to "skii" on the ground. My wheels must have lost traction with the road because suddenly my bike was swaying side to side and felt like it was just gliding. I instinctively spread out my feet to balance and somehow avoided oncoming traffic. I was super paranoid after this and was basically riding at 40km/h and less the rest of the way to work. Not sure what I did or what happened, but I'm quite sure I won't be riding on wet roads again for a while... What could have happened? I don't think I saw any sort of dirt or oil on the road... I was riding in an upright position as the turn was very gradual so it couldn't have been my lean angle My thoughts were maybe it had something to do with the combination of wind and wet roads. If this was the case then I think it would be way to easy to lose control in wet/windy conditions, and probably not even worth riding. However, I have ridden in rain/wet and more windy conditions and turned tighter angles without losing control. Any ideas? Thanks.
