After commuting almost daily for the past couple of months, I decided that I would get some strapless toe clips to help me position my feet properly. Wow! What a difference. From "flat out" at 22mph before I'd spin a foot off, to 28.5mph and still accelerating with clips. My journey time (inbound) went from a personal best of 33 minutes over 7.5 miles to 30 minutes "trying out" today. And my return was done in 33 minutes compared to PB of 38 minutes as it's quite draggy in places. Commute is Redditch-Bordesley-Alvechurch-Hopwood-Lea End Lane-Wast Hill Lane and onto the lovely Hawkesley estate. Sure some of you will know the terrain. Next pocket money day.... SPDs!
