Accident and wet conditions problem?flyinbowlofmilk

I just got back yesterday from my 2nd Cycle North Carolina 2002. Which I rode and felt much better ,thanks in part to riding since last November. But enough with that lip service from me. Here is my questions. One day during the Cycle North Carolina 2002,I came up on a rider who had came to a complete stop at a intersection. My question is what should I have done to prevent myself from brushing here rear wheel? I fell over from brushing her rear wheel. Should I have look up the road a least 200 to 300 yard to prevent this accident? And my last question. How fast should a roadie go when the road are wet?
Ride within your ability.MrCelloBoy

You apparently didn't leave yourself enough space to stop. At least you fell instead of knocking the other rider down.

The only real limit to how fast you can ride in the rain is your own ability.
