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

SPD style pedals

I'm a little confused about the term "SPD".

Here's an SPD pedal that uses the big triangular cleat:

Here's an SPD that uses the MTB style cleat:

I thought the term SPD refered to the typical road pedal with the triangular cleat.
