2 Left turn lanes, I was in the right-most left turn lane. It was late at night and dark- no lights yet.. first day with clipless pedals.
So I come to an almost stop, unclip my left and [unfortunatly] slowly start to lean to the right. I freak, try to pull my right foot out and end up falling slightly out of my lane. A car passes what felt like a foot away from my head, honking.
Woo. I'm so much more careful now on clipless.
Btw, I usually can't clip in perfectly when starting up at a stoplight- I have to ride with the arch of my shoe over the pedal, then clip in when I"m running. I've heard you shouldn't fool with your pedals in the intersection if you can't clip in perfectly the first time...
