I have not really ridden in almost 15 years and was not much good even then. Mid life crisis forces last ditch effort to get fit before I die and have therefore just bought a Trek 6300. I notice that nearly all the mountain bikers wear those clip in shoes so I guess that they are a must but given the high chance of falling off I am very worried about getting locked in. I plan on doing most of my riding in the dark peak area and off road whenever possible, but dont think I will want to go fast down hill for a quite a while yet.
Any advise on clipless shoes or pedals for a beginner.
Apart from the helmet I just have the bike and padded shorts so what should I be buying next.
Many Thanks Chris
Sorry - Should have read the previous post on this subject - Silly Me
I will ride flat pedal until I can actually ride !
