Some days, a run is just a run. That was today. A loop around the Mystic Lakes with a “This American Life” podcast playing, and it’s on to the rest of the day.
My new SPD-SL pedals are big and flat enough to make adequate platform pedals for my regular shoes for short trips, like this morning’s ride to the T station. They’re a little slippery, fine for a short ride on a flat bike path, but I wouldn’t want to do much hill climbing without my bike shoes.

It’s probably too late for this suggestion to be useful to you, Ray…but if you plan to ride sometimes with cycling shoes (that have a cleat on the bottom to engage the clipless pedals), and other times in regular shoes, you might consider getting pedals that can be used either way. These “convertible” pedals have a clip on one side and a conventional surface on the other side. Here is an example:
The convertible pedals don’t allow for enough adjustment to accomodate me. And it is too late 🙂
