Clipless at last

Walked into my local Performance yesterday to buy some shorts and realized they were having a heck of a sale. So a set of entry level Forte pedals and shoes, $80 bucks later and I'm clipless. Only made sweeter by the fact that it was a beautiful day for a ride today. I can't imagine going back to other pedals.

No one saw the first fall. It was the second where I practically landed on, and unintentionally groped, a cute college girl. That was embarrassing. Fortunately she rides and understood.

I've never had a clipless fall, but if I've got to have one, that's how I plan on going down!
