I am finally going to take the plunge and lose my clips.
My situation is:
I am 54, started riding again this past April
I ride the W&OD paved trail in NoVA exclusively
I have no desire to race
I avg., over the past 600+ miles about 14.5 miles per hour on the trail.
My typical rides are 10 to 20 miles at a clip. I will expand that next year, however this has been the trend this year. I liked cages because I could strap one foot in and keep one lose in case of emergency. I am told that the release function allows for a quick release in case of emergency. This is important.
My question is, what is a recommended pedal and shoe? I will be visiting my LBS, however I would like to be educated before going in.
I have a budget of around $150.00.
