icy roads n' stuff

so i've had some icy roads for the past few days down here in texas... how do you guys tell if it's safe to take the bike out? Do you scout the roads out with a car, or do you just intuitively know?

Dying to go for a ride

You have more contact surface with your shoes than you do on your bike tires. Just something to think about ?

Once it hits 35 most the time i get done. Shady areas usually are a bit colder n that could be black ice....
I value my life enough to not chance it.
Seen what happens when u hit black ice on a bike....
Specially on a corner.....

If that corner has a cliff or something ur a gonner
