And So It Begins…

Pedals?  Who wants an omelette?!
Pedals? Who wants an omelette?!

These little babies showed up this week, and I suppose it’s only fitting that the rain started coming down as I installed them in my garage. My ‘real’ bike won’t be done for a bit of time, so I put them on a ‘training bike’ that I’ll use for now. (More on that in a future post.) In my mind I’ve been visualizing myself going through the motions of the skills I’ll be working on between now and the fall season. My ‘real’ shoes will be here next week, but I couldn’t wait, and threw the cleats on a spare pair of mtb shoes to begin getting used these wildly different pedals (I’ve only really ridden Time Impacts for the past two years. I just spent the better part of the last 15 minutes laughing at myself saying “nope, that’s not it…..nope, not there either….hmm, that’s not it either….ok, wait, nope……”

It’s a good thing I’ve still got some months ahead, I’ve got a lot of work to do.

A lot.
