I’m the very proud new road bike owner of these bad boys

Clipless set up, what what!

Welcome to a whole new world of road biking, Erin. Yes, I’ve had a road bike for almost a year and I’ve been riding in running shoes and basket pedals (I was scared to switch!). My awesome sis and b.i.l. hooked me up with the clipless pedals for Christmas so I finally invested in these Specialized beauties.

I feel like a boss waddling around in these shoes, finally fitting in with how most road bikers dress themselves. Now I just need a sponsored bike jersey+shorts get-up and an intense tan line, and I’ll blend right into the Boulder cyclist crowd :P

Along with my dad’s advice, my cyclist buddy Will helped me pick them out then he laughed with me when I wiped out kept me company as I went out for my first ride in them on Sunday. Hey, I only fell over once. And I’m glad I did… the fall didn’t hurt nearly as bad as I thought it would and it was just a matter of time before I was going to wipe out anyways. I’m glad I got that out of the way.
I love me some cycling, but I’m a runner. Through and through.

Oh wait, I’m doing a triathlon in three weeks? The nervous breakdown will commence in 3…2…1…
