Event Details

Interested in taking your cycling to the next level with clip-in pedals?  Whether you ride a road bike, mountain bike or commuter bike, clip-in pedals will help you to ride more efficiently, produce more power, especially when ascending the local hills, and be more confident in your handling by being more 'connected' to your bike.  The rigid connection allows you to engage a better control of balance.  Imagine utilizing the power from your legs as they move up, pulling the pedal, as well as when you push down on the pedals.  Pulling up with your opposite leg while the other is pushing down creates a better distribution of the workload across both legs simultaneously.   

Ready to join us for this free clinic providing you with the tips and tricks to quickly learn how to use your clip-in pedals and how to easily and safety unclip at intersections, stop signs and refueling stops?  Here's what you'll need to do to prepare for the clinic and what you'll need to bring along to get the most out of it:

1) If you don't already own a pair of clip-in specific cycling shoes, stop by Sports Basement several days in advance to try some on, ask questions of our knowledgeable cycling staff and make your purchase so you may bring them to the clinic.  Doing this in advance will also provide enough time for your size to be located should it not be available that day.

2) Take a look at the clip-in pedal selection and discuss your options and what is recommended for your type of riding.  Purchase them if you're ready or wait for the clinic when we'll discuss your options and the comparative benefits.  If you have purchased pedals, we'll put them on your bike (if not already installed) and proceed to the parking lot to practice clipping in and out, starting and stopping and feeling comfortable and confident while riding this 'connected' to your bike.

Bring the following gear:

- your bike

- cycling gear (helmet, riding apparel, cycling shoes and clip-in pedals)
