I generally shift 1 at a time, harder or easier as terrain changes.

We are considered the intrusion either place unfortunately. Too slow for the road, too fast for the MUP. Cycling is the perfect realization we are all just guests on this planet. Behave accordingly.

Attach saddlebags, frame bags, or whatever, enough to contain your pump, tools, tube, etc., and just leave 'em on the bike. Then your only prep time is checking the tires and airing them up if needed.

Make sure that the cleats are screwed in enough too. If they are loose it can be hard to clip out.

Also try to really pivot at the ankle like Dorothy.

I think this might be it. When I used road-type shoes with SPD, they always released easily. With mountain-type shoes, they sometimes snag on the rubber cleats.
