bike - pedals

Clip on pedals are great for chugging down the highway, A to B style travel. That’s if you can stand clunking around the shoes all day and carrying another pair of footwear.

Once you leave the bitumen: dunno.

Soft surfaces can create problems in the staying upright department.

There’s plenty of moments, generally unplanned, when being fixed to your pedals is not a great idea. Like those occasions of spontaneous ejection from your repose in the saddle.

Clip ons? Not for me.

A pair of Keen sandals with a solid toe and flat BMX style pedals is a cheap insurance policy against injury out there in the sticks.
