Clipless Pedal Primer

Yeah, you’ll likely fall over at least once when moving to clipless pedals. But the efficiency is worth that initial fall which will take place at a slow pace.

Clipless Pedal Primer

I heard another story of a new roadie who injured herself by crashing when she couldn’t get out of her new clipless pedals at an intersection. So, this week I want to provide some tips for those thinking of upgrading to clipless pedals, or new to them.

In fact, you’ll be safer, too, because you can get your feet on the ground faster than when you’re riding with toe clips and straps.
