One of the things I have wanted to do since I cycled the MS Pedal to the Point and the Hancock Horizontal Hundred last year is to switch out my caged pedals to clipless pedals. These pedals clip you to the pedal via a cleat recessed in special cycling shoes. They make you one with the bike and improve your pedaling efficiency. On the pedals we grew up with in our youth, we moved forward with every downward push. The clipless pedal moves you forward using the total circumference of your cycling motion.

It was the first decent day of the year. I decided to take the Dew Plus out for a spin on the Towpath. I started at Mustill Store and cycled north to Portage Path. The surface was in decent shape. I had to turn back just before Portage Path. The trail was blocked with the surface washed out some. I figured 8 miles was enough for the night.
I also used the ride as a test run on using my iPhone to journal the ride. I’ve been readying this blog for posting from the iPhone. Check out the test video below. It actually has a pretty good video camera in it. I need to film the next test in landscape mode. I need to also work on getting the automatic posting to the blog to work. Not bad for a first attempt.
