    I've just started outdoor cycling although I'm still building up my confidence

    Been out twice now, first time I did 35 miles and second time I did around 20

    My other half is evil and takes me to countryside parks with hilly terrain. It feels like a hardcore workout!

    Just getting back on the bike after major illness and I'm going to bike for utilitarian purposes for a few weeks before I start pushing myself. I've been for two rides this week.

    Thousands of miles later, this weekend I finally clipped in. Holy cow, it's amazing. I picked up a pair of giro mtb shoes clearance at REI last year but couldn't quite convince myself to try it out for fear of falling. Well, after tipping over several times this winter, I figured why not fall over some more? Took a spin around the neighborhood yesterday, didn't tip over. Took a spin around the south part of the city today, didn't tip over. Here's hoping I keep that upright streak alive!

    If you haven't already, adjust your pedals so they're holding your cleats loosely. So when you find yourself having to stop very suddenly, then panic when you realize your feet are stuck, it'll be much easier to get out before you fall over. I think that's how I've managed to not fall over yet. I also generally don't clip in while riding in city traffic.

    @ssbeadlady I did a screen print from an email on my phone, then uploaded the image to MFP while creating the post.

    I am sorry I guess I didn't express myself correctly. I don't mean how did you get it to show up here. I mean how did you get the award to show up from MMR.
