Somewhere along the way on the AIDS/LifeCycle I broke one of the retaining pads on my left cleat ((you can see it on the left side in the picture above)). It would have been great had I not been a dum-dum and left my spare, still in the wrapper, cleats at home. As it was it wasn’t so bad, I just had trouble pulling up on the pedal on my left side. I’ve ridden a few times since then, but tonight I finally replaced my cleats with the spanking new ones. The reason? I intend to be up early tomorrow morning to ride. I’m actually looking forward to it.
