Went pretty well but for the first stop. We got on the bike and my buddy wanted to stop at the restroom, so I snapped into the clips, popped and back in a few times, and pedaled to the can.
Lesson 1. Clip out BEFORE you come to a full stop.
I stopped and immediately forgot the clips. Wheee! At least I found that when I fall over I curl up and tuck in instead of reaching out.
Got some scratches on the new bike however and scraped the new 105 SPD-SLs. Oh well gotta do it sooner or later.
After that learning lesson, they felt real good and I like 'em a lot. A fine ride, my calculator says I burned 600 calories. Seems like a lot for me. I need to check that out somewhere else.
Now I need to work on those hills.
