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

Pedal Action

Have been watching some of the Tour De France...

Seems all riders have their knees pointed inward - is this a more efficient/powerfull position - or what is the reason ?

Do they simply keep kness pushed in or is the cleat postion that determines that - i.e heels out ?
