I'm a fifty year old who has been commuting to work for nearly a year now. It's about an hour ride each way. The ride is no problem except for my toes. They're always red and swollen; and one of them has a pressure sore on the bottom where the skin is coming off.
I use old style toe clips. For the first several months I used shoes that were too tight. And I didn't have the clips adjusted for my large feet. I've now got roomy shoes; and the clips are opened all the way forward. But, it's still rough on my feet. It seems like most pedals are designed to use the first third of your feet, putting unnatural pressure in that area.
Anyone have this problem who has found a solution for it?
