    oof, that's rough. Not much choice there. A fat bike with studded tires would have gotten you over that nonsense (first hand experience here). That doesn't mean it would have been fun or easy or...

    My anecdotal experience is 20 years of riding clipless in all forms of biking road/MTB/commuter/winter etc. I can say with 100% certainty that platforms are not safer. I've had many many crashes,...
