I wouldn't do it with skinny road tires. I have studded tires, but unfortunately I went with Marathon Winters this year, and even they stink in snow. Next year I'm going back to Nokian W106s. On the Marathons, I'm driving when there's deep snow, but not on ice where they're fine. With the Nokians I rode every day, even on days when I had to walk up hills and pedal hard to get down them (yes, I'd actually stop moving going DOWN a hill if I stopped pedalling, the snow was that deep).
Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.
