    Low gear, lean back, spin, sweat, give up in a 1/4 mile, fall over, make snow angel.
    I can ride the solarcycle with no hands.

    I did just that earlier this year. I must say though that making the now angel did make me feel better. Thankfully we only had snow like that on one of my commuting days this year
    I'm riding again in the Tour de Cure, and of course looking for sponsors and riders: My TDC page

    My family tree is full of nuts

    Look, I ride in pretty rad conditions sometimes in the winter (I really do invest in my equip), but if the snow is up to the BB and is actually that soft, well, I fold up my pride and do the good 'ol walk and push (the bike), until I reach a more cyclible spot.

    It sucks orangutan balls, I know, but it's the only way to get from point A to point B in the conditions described


    EDIT: I wholeheartedly support the "make snow angel" approach. Won't get you far, but it's sometimes the last resort to salvage sanity. And you kinda need that.
