Where I ride there are lots of muddy spots. Most of them just have some narrow (~5") boards over the thick deep mud. About half the time I can ride over without going off of the boards and in to the mud, but often I end up in the mud about 3/4 the way across (about 8-10 feet). I have tried looking further out in front of me and also directly in front of my wheel and doesn't seem to change anything. Is there a way for me to increase my bike control so that I can stay on these boards?

Go to the lumberyard, get a couple of 2x6s, put them in your yard or driveway, and practice.
