Shoe Fitting

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Shoe Fitting

I got a new pair of everyday Sidi shoes for Christmas. I have worn Sidi's before so had the size right. But they felt very uncomfortable. After considerable analysis, I decided to remove the cardboard inserts. I would suggest that others try this technique
