I took the plunge

M and I stopped at on outlet mall on our way home yesterday and found that the Pearl Izumi store was having a *huge* sale. I finally took the plunge and bought these. They are the Attack MTB II cycling shoe.

M promised we will go to the park this weekend so I can learn how to clip in & out of my pedals. We bought pedals last year that had one "regular" side (for use with sneakers) and a clipless side. They have been waiting for the day I would decide to start riding with real cycling shoes.

Why go to the park, you ask? Because there will be lots of grass there to cushion my many, many falls.


  1. That seems intimidating and scary as hell. Good luck :) I am excited to hear how it goes. And I will have many questions, I'm sure!

  2. These are great! What's the news lately?
