The joy of new shoes and pedals

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

briefly tried it this evening - i think i'll do about 40km with them tomorrow... depending on whether you place one of the cleats on the left or right foot, the release angle adjusts between 15 or 20 degrees. getting out doesn't seem to be a problem, but it's a bit stiff getting in. The best technique I've found is to slide into the eggbeater and push forcefully forward & down. I've been told this will be different in a week or so when the brand-new cleat wears a bit.
