Pesaslake; the SPDs vs Flats Ride

 

 

It was time for me to lead an RCC ride again – my old stomping ground of Peaslake was the chosen destination, and I set off in the car eager to ride there again. Too eager to remember all my kit….

As I drove through Westcott, that sudden sinking feeling hit me that something was missing. Helmet, gloves, glasses? Yes, definitely picked them up. Shoes? Oh. Pretty sure I didn’t get them. A few choice thoughts slipped through my brain as I tried to work out how one leads a ride with SPD pedals and trainers on the trails of the Surrey hills!
