There are pedals with toe "cages" which work pretty well and are easy enough to pull one's foot out of when you stop. I ignored mine last year, but after using them in Spinning classes I think I'll begin to use them on a regular basis.

Gwen - the sprint swim is the same as the BC Tri - not sure you want to do 2 tri's back to back weekends though LOL.
Once the RBR (run-bike-runs) start on Wed (? that is when they were last year) You'll get a lot of bike to run transition practice - do you use clipless pedals?

"The Tri-Oswego Triathlon Weekend is sure to attract first-time racers, seasoned triathletes, and relay teams from across the Northeast. With the courses' connection to the natural landscape, the Tri-Oswego Triathlon events are magnificently scenic, spectator friendly, and gentle on the environment.

The Sprint event offers a refreshing 800 meter swim in the Oswego Harbor; followed by a 13 mile bike course through beautiful Oswego County; and a 5K run culminating at a finish line that rewards you with a panoramic view of Lake Ontario. Not sure you want take on the entire distance? Form a relay team!

The Intermediate distance Event will consist of a 1500 meter swim, 24.9 mile bike course, and a 10K run.

Bring the whole family! Weekend also features the Novelis Kid's Fun Run.
