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".
Thanks in advance for any advice.
