Drove by us real slow and turned around at the other end... handed the end of the winch cable and a strop to us and pulled the bike across lickety-split.
A rope would not have done us any good by ourselves..
No doubt a winch is better then just a piece of rope.

I had got myself stuck in a swollen creek in a very similar way in which you did. I was by myself.
A winch would not have done me any good unless I had a couple of hundred feet of cable on it.
Luckily a 4 wheeler came by and gave me a tug with a piece of rope. Since then I have carried rope with me
