I think we're going to make the trip to WT. It's a little easier for my wife and Brandy, 8 yr. old, just went to clips. She's been doing pretty good, (only bounced a few times), and wants to try them off road. Thanks anyway buddy. How olds your son Gregg?

We need to get the kids  and family together for a ride somewhere sometme. How was your alls ride yesterday at Alafia. We had a great time at WT! My wife did her first full loop of the main trails there and Brandy, the 8 yr. old, did her first off road ride since switching to clips. She did great, only bouncing a few times and that was in the soft sand when she couldn't get uncliped and not on the roots like I thought would happen.

We had a great ride at Alafia! Jacob has been using clip in pedals for a while, but still forgets in the parking lot.

We definitely need to do that. Jacob prefers riding at Alafia or Boyette over Wilderness, but I am the one driving the car, so we can meet where ever. :)

Brandy's the only one I don't trust on anything too technical(8), but Kenny, Savannah, and Grayden are okay at Alafia. That's my favorite place too. There's still places Miriam and Brandy can ride there while we ride the more technical stuff though. Boyette's fine too for my whole family.

If I rode clip pedals, I would wear a helmet--those things are dangerous for real.

Not once you get used to them. You get alot more power out of them by being able to get 360 degrees(where's the degree symbol on the keyboard?) of torque to the pedals instead of just on the downstroke. All my kids ride them. Besides they make for some really good crashes and we all know if your not crashing your not riding hard enough!

I think on a PC it's ALT+8? On a Mac it's Option+Shift+8

Might have to experiment a couple of those commands, but it's in there.  There is a website - name escapes me right now - that lists key commands for different symbols in typing.

I know the said advantages of clippers but not for me--when I am jumping I need to be able to get those feet off in a hurry.
