Right handed, and right food goes forward.

I have trouble even just coasting down the road with my left foot forward. Really need to work on that.

Well I am a natural left foot forward right handed person. I trained myself to start playing with right foot forward in order to protect my knees and not be so one sided. Sometimes at speed if you hit a drop or something you really can't get your chocolate foot forward, so it is best to know how to jump and land using either.

Primarily left foot (right handed), but can do either when needed.

I've always been a left-foot kicker of a soccer ball (but right foot kicker of a rugby ball.... weird, eh? ). As Maelstrom said, it pays to be able to do both!

I primaraly do it with my left foot forward but can do it the other way, just not as well.

I am generally better at doing stuff with my right hand.

I must be some sort of freak

Left handed (kinda ambidextrous) and right foot forward.

right and right, but I do use the left foot too. So not always right, just don't tell the wife I said that

My old big chainring had two flatspots where the teeth were ground down when climbing over things. I thought this was normal until I saw one that only had the one flatspot. The rider must have only been able to use their chocolate foot.
