With the cold/windy/wet/icy weather we’ve been having, this is one of those days where lots of folks are wondering what the biking conditions are like.

We’ve also heard about black ice on various bicycle thoroughfares — especially bridge decks and viaducts. So, in the name of bringing all the info together into one place, please share what you know in the comments below. We’re looking to hear about conditions on specific streets and we’d also like to hear your advice, tips, and workarounds for how to deal with the conditions.

Thanks! And, please ride with caution.
