I picked up some clips and shoes today. I didn’t think having cycling shoes would make a big difference. I’ve been riding with tennis shoes the past three days without any problems. Well, I would slip off the pedal every now and then. And my heel would rub the frame here and there. When I was at the bike store picking up a water bottle I notice their shoes and clips were on sale. So I had to at least check it out. Ended up getting a set at what I felt was a good price. Took about 30 minutes to install them and fine tune the adjustments. Now for the test ride. “Clip, clip” oh yeah. What a huge difference they make. Before it was me riding a bike, now “clip, clip” man and machine become one.
