yes it will. Maybe not 5 feet, but it is all physics. When you go backwards your momentum is in the backwards direction which results in an equal amount of momentum to push your bike forward. Because momentum is mass*speed and you weigh much more than your bike, a slight movement by you can have a large affect on the momentum of your bike.
