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

Screw you. What you you know about being serious that you have to tell us how to do it?

Typical arrogant condescending roadie jerk.

"trust me"? I don't think so...

If you're so smart, tell me: isn't it always better to unclip on the left side first?

Hey G, we named my daughter's college bike, an old steel-frame MTB, the Bix Beiderbecke Beater Bike. She took a course in Jazz history at SUNY-Oneonta last semester, so she actually knew what I was talking about.
