Push and Pull April 4, 2009

Posted by goirishgorebels in General.

Today was great.  The sun was shining, the temp was mid 60’s.  A nice spring day.

I headed out with a plan to stop by RB’s Cycling and pick up some new pedals and shoes.  I got there after closing hours, but they were still open getting ready for the Ride into Spring.  After talking to all the riding experts that I’ve met through soccer, I decided to get some mountain bike pedals and shoes.  These are the kind where you click yourself into the pedal.  These allow for you to push and pull at the same time.  It’s supposed to be more efficient, especially riding up hills and long rides.  Everyone I have talked to tell me I am going to fall.  I’m sure I will, but I didn’t today.  I could definitely tell a difference, especially on the hills.  I got a little over 20 miles in and hope to get a good ride in tomorrow because the rain will be coming Sunday.
