    Loop a strap through the rear wheel and slowly pull it backwards? Or does that risk messing up the rear fender?

    A few years ago I and about 8 other people played tug of war with a sled that snapped a belt mid water-crossing. It worked. Although IIRC, bent one of the arms since that was the attachment point and the effort required was underestimated.

    You forgot the seat-bounce. That's okay, most people do. Gonna be tricky with those forward controls though.

    Assuming the ground is frozen, pile up firewood all around. Add kindling. Light.

    When the ground turns to mud, the bike topples over. Problem solved.

    Actually solves several problems....

    Did you manage to free the bike of its spot?

    Similar incident with my old man, we dug a trench behind it and dumped a bunch of gravel in, and then pushed it from the front (only had room to go backward).

    Dig out around rear tire

    Get a 2x8 like 10 ft and a log as a fulcrum to lever up the rear tire slip under some plywood

    Get 3 guys to lift it on the back of a truck and you can drive it out. I would try to get a truck with 4 wheel drive. Just in case the truck gets stuck. It looks muddy back there.
