I haven't taken the wheel off, but it doesn't look fun.
Jeez,, do a rehearsal at home where it's warm and dry ,
rather than figure it out , later, in less comfortable situations..

on My winter Bike with Drum brakes , the strap around the chainstay
fitted to the hub strut with a nut and bolt.
So I went to the hardware store , got a Quick release pin,
with a spring loaded ball retention scheme in the tip.

changed it and a few fittings to make it just a skosh simpler.

the rehearsal will suggest changes You might wish to make..

shifting to where the cable is slack, means it will be in that gear
Predictably, when you hook it up again.
