Today’s ride 24 Miles.
I had my first graceful fall on clipless pedals. How did it happen? Standing still of course… I was pulling upto the house after today’s ride (which was chilly and windy by the way) when i rode up onto our cobble stone walkway. Only my steering sucked and I rode right onto the edge of the stones and grass where my tire dug into the dirt and I couldnt steer out. I immediatly unclipped one pedal but wasnt quick enough to get my foot on the ground and down I went. Thankfully I landed in the grass but of course as I was going down then my other pedal unclipped. I just layed there for a second laughing at myself. I’ve been avoiding this moment since I got these pedals almost 2yrs ago. It was bound to happen. Of course I had to do the look around to see if any of my neighbors saw..im gonna say I was in clear with this one lol.
