-Never ride into something that you can't see the bottom of. -If there are not too many obstacles, you can ride through the water as usual. -Instead of cranking in a high gear, try spinning in a low gear if the water is too deep. -If the water is real deep, try ratcheting your pedals by doing quarter pedal strokes. -Brakes will be much less effective when wet, so watch out. -Water can get into bearings and damage them. So don't ride things that are too deep (anything higher than your bottom bracket is considered deep by most people). -After riding through the water, pulse both brakes a few times to scrub off the water.
