In this video you will learn how to clip and unclip the pedals. The three key steps are: clipping, unclipping and starting and stopping.
Look for a support to steady yourself to practice clipping and unclipping on clipless pedals.
Swing your right leg across over the saddle and onto the pedal.
Steady yourself by taking support against something.
Slide your foot over the pedal and clip into the pedal.
Depending on the pedal type, you may also need to rotate the pedal over with your foot so that the pedal is the right way up and you can clip in.
Rotating the pedal and clipping in in one seamless action will require practice to get right You should hear a sound when the shoe clicks in.
Try pulling your leg straight up to check if the shoe has clipped in well.
To unclip, rotate the heel outward away from the bike Practice clipping and unclipping both pedals.
Once you are comfortable you are ready to hit the road.
Stand with the dominant foot on the pedal in the 11 o'clock position and the other foot on the ground.
Clip it into the pedal.
Next pedal forward and clip the other foot into the pedal.
When you want to stop, get into a lower gear so that it is easier for you to start again.
Unclip your non dominant foot by rotating the heel outward and rest it on the road.
Leave the dominant foot clipped into the pedal.
Over time, clipping and unclipping, will come to you naturally.
Enjoy your ride.
