Why did Gandalf go to Isengard? Can't Post

It seems that once Radagast tells Gandalf that the Nine are abroad and searching for the Shire, he should have immediately gone back to guide Frodo. Instead he goes on to Isengard. The book gives a short explanation that maybe Saruman had weapons that would drive back the nine but that would hardly matter if they reached the ring first. How else to explain Gandalf's decision here that almost ends in ruin?
