[Inspired by misreading Rod Tiger's Bicycular Trucks]

Can't ride your bicycle through that muddy battlefield ? Well you need bicycle tank tracks for extra traction.

       Going round corners might be a problem.

       Apparently bicycles with a track in back and a ski (or skiis) in front have been proposed for snow travel--patented in Canada but I don't know if they were ever manufactured. *tries to imagine prehensile wheels, sees vision of toroidal squid*

       The Iditabike snow race has inspired the production of extra wide rims and tyres that actually work. Originally, people glued 2 rims together, but now they are extruded in extra wide form. Bike are steered by balancing and balanced by steering. Without quick steering of the front wheel, you fall over.

       Dramatically wider tires, lower gearing might be an easier solution. See http://www.burrobikes.com/ for a concept in this direction.

       There are two wheel drive bikes that might help too.
