Thanks for the help. I know this will help me become a better rider. It will just take some time and practice. When it becomes automatic, the rides will be more enjoyable as I will be able to enjoy the surroundings.
Rick, I SO appreciate you bringing up this subject, since I am at the point of buying clips for my shoes and pedals..and was wondering the EXACT SAME THING. Ugh, I've been trying really hard to do the pull up without clips and do well, so long as all concentration is focused on that motion.
The link provided was great for me.I've printed it out and now have great instructions...I ADORE the descriptions, and that alone is going to help improve my own coordination and method.
I recently invested in cycling shoes and clipless pedals. These are the first time I made this step up in gear for performace improvement.
I have adjusted to connecting and disconnecting without problems. Now comes the next part, what is the best means to train myself to take full advantage of their benefit. I think I get the basic concept, push down and forward, pull up and back, but only seem to do this when actively concentrating on it. This needs to become automatic and I have always been impatient when learning new "tricks".
