Boy do I feel stupid.
Why didn’t I buy clipless cycling shoes the same moment I bought my new bicycle? Driving with SPD-cleats in shoes is a whole different game than with just regular shoes.
During the weekend I purchased Shimano shoes and cleats from Prisma supermarket – and today I drove my first leg to work and immediately felt the amazing difference. Cycling is no longer onesided push motion with your leg, but rather a constant cycling motion with power from your legs transferring into the bicycle.
I still don’t have energy or power to drive as fast as some drivers on the road, but I am not in a hurry.
