I rode the Wine Country metric century on Saturday - great ride, great route, and a fun time. I had the opportunity to test out a new truly clipless shoe system. We are all familiar with SPD's and SPD-L's and LOOK, etc. Well on Saturday I rode the entire metric on my new CRS system. The CRS in this case stands for Can't Remember Shoes, or at least I didn't remember I had forgotten to put them into the car until I was almost at the event, so I ended up having to do the ride in my sneakers. In my defense I had recently switched from SPD's and a mountain bike shoe to SPD-L's and road bike shoes. Before I was used to putting on my bike shoes at home. The ride wasn't horrible, and the platform was big enough to rest my feet on, but I could definitely tell the difference in power, and standing up was nerve racking. Hopefully I've learned my lesson, but probably not.
