A new and exciting thing to count

So over the weekend I got clipless pedals for my bike. (Fun fact: “clipless” pedals are the kind that you clip in to. Awesome naming.) If the internets are to be believed, I’m 1/3rd of the way to breaking them in. The story goes that when you first start riding with them you’ll fall three times. On the way home yesterday I forgot to clip out as I pulled up to the intersection of Colorado and Michillinda. This, of course, resulted in the slow tip sideways and me on my ass in the road in front of a (stopped!) pickup. Both the bike and me (save a skinned knee) are no worse for wear, so things went about as well as they could have.

At any rate: one down, two to go. I can’t wait!

    So, are you finding your riding is more efficient with the clipless (and yeah, that is awesome naming) setup?

    The situations that will throw you are ones where unexpected maneuvers are involved.

    Moving at low speeds, or having to stop suddenly.

    Definitely work on fixing any kind of pain.
