OK, it's silly season and this is just for fun, so don't yell at me!
I'm wondering what the longest distance is that you've ridden without unclipping?
Let me qualify this - I'm talking about maintaining continuous forward momentum. No stopping for a pee, a drink, or a road sign! I think you'd need to be clipped-in otherwise you probably wouldn't remember coming to a rest and putting your foot down.
Here's what's behind it - I'm in my first riding season and a couple weeks ago bought my first MTB shoes and pedals. I haven't used them much and the times I have used them they've been a bit of a pain.
So yesterday I set off for a nice long ride. After quite a few miles of riding around the roads here in Door County WI, and crossing both of our main highways, I realized that I hadn't yet un-clipped. It then became an adventure, to see how far I could ride without ever once stopping or taking my foot from the pedal
hey, it's the winter - it makes me do crazy things. Check back in February and I'll probably be hopping down the highway on one leg whilst holding a string of balloons.
Anyway, after some careful routing to avoid certain junctions which I knew might be problematic, I made it back to my own home without having once stopped. Total mileage - 56.85 MMR
My legs were sore but I think I might have gone farther. It was getting late in the day and I had other things to do. I may try and do a Century before the snow starts falling.
Anyway, I wondered if anyone might have done something similar and kept a record of it. If not, get out there and try it on your next ride! It's actually quite fun and requires a bit of extra thought. Only once in the ride did I have to take a right turn to avoid stopping at a junction that I wanted to pass through.
