Wimpy, wimpy, wimpy - Hefty, hefty, hefty
Clipless rules the day for my 20k daily Toronto commute while the Earth tips her northerly pole towards Gaia, however platform with plastic toe cage (no straps), combined with my Sorel (before they sold out) snowmobiling boots are my concession to the Winter gods.
Now, am old, am wimp & don't ride in heavy snow. Three falls in one December snowstorm (1999), the worst a wicked wipeout at Parliament & Carlton, (Torontonians will know what am talking about), on the web of streetcar tracks, resulted in post traumatic cycle stress syndrome & haven't been the same since.
Besides, have child at home that needs parent.
