15% Gradually roll the front brake until stopping force desired
And honestly i never calculated how much force i use on the rear brake
On a emergency stop it all depends on the situation if there's a escape route i take that if not front and rear brake used gradually and I've tried them a couple times around

On a more serious note, there's too much sand and chemical on the roads which will take weeks to wash away. If you have never ridden on a slightly damp road with de-icer sprayed on it, I would be extremely cautious. The purpose of road-deicer is to prevent water from adhering to concrete, like a silica. Works great for that purpose but it's like riding on glass when wet And if you have never ridden on sand before, you can borrow some from RacerX's <3
