Making the switch from your gym sneakers to clip in cycling shoes may be a tough decision in the beginning, but it will be one you will never regret. Many people who rent our shoes to try out agree that they immediately feel a difference, and go rushing out to buy a pair of their own.
According to livestrong.com, clip-in cycling shoes have the following advantages:
· prevent slipping off the pedals and helps apply even force and control in every stroke (be one with the bike)
· allow push and pull with each pedal stroke, working full range of leg muscles (for that beach bod!)
· prevent fatigue, injury, and incorrect form (so you can give your all with each climb, sprint, and jump)
· a rigid sole prevents foot strain (save those feet for long walks on the beach)
Breakaway Cycle has cycling shoes at the studio available to rent for $5, and if you are ready buy a pair, California Bicycle on La Jolla Blvd. gives Breakaway riders 15% off!
