Cycle in rain

Guys, Can you give me some advse please.

It is absolutely hammering it down outside and I have my training bike with me today with its slick 23mm tyres. So how do I ride home without killing myself?

1) As normal it wont make a difference
2) Keep the speed right down
3) Keep the speed down on the downhills but normal everywhere else
4) Other

Thanks in advance.

    let some air out of the tires to increase their surface area, about 90psi should do it

    little bit of pressure dropped out will help, you aren't going to aquaplane on a bike so as long as you keep it on the blackstuff i'd think things would be fine.

    in reality the road isn't any more dangerous apart from puddles obscuring pot holes and metal/painted stuff being slippery. when the rain stops you can find more gravel/thorns etc washed onto the road. avoid the gutter and the slippy bits and enjoy it!
