Subtitle: What happens if I can't get my feet out of the "clipless pedals".
I couldn't find a name for the maneuver I did this morning. There was lots of advice of how not to do it. But I thought I would tell how to do it right.
The Three Point Shoulder Stand (TPSS, pronounced Tips) is performed when you come to a stop with your feet in the clip in (no-clip?) pedals and you don't manage to get your feet out in time. When performed properly it should look to an observer like you have been hit with a stun gun, like there is no apparent reason for you to decide to throw your legs in the air and wave em around like you just don't care, to fall over like Artie Johnson on his tricycle, like you are a defective Weeble (you wobble and you do fall down).
Make sure when you get up to pretend like you did that on purpose. See if there are any observers to award you style points then remount your trusty steed and pedal off. Remember shoulder, helmet, handle bars. These are the only points that should touch the ground for maximum points.
