Me. This isn’t an ad for CROCs or modeling hairy legs – rather a display of not being prepared.
For the first time in all of the years riding, I forget one of the essential items – my shoes. My friend Val and I rode the Loop the other night. Just when we were ready to push off, I noticed that I didn’t have my riding shoes… ughh!!! Man I was ticked! Val had his running shoes in his car and offered them to me however they were too small. Not wanting to back-out since we were already dressed and ready to go, I decided to just ride with my new Crocs Cayman. Obviously these were not made for riding, just for pure comfort with very soft soles
Within the first few miles, I can feel the pedal bars pressed up against the ball of my feet. Truly an uncomfortable feeling as we rode the 11 mile Loop. At the same time, I kept envisioning this guy with the “Helmet Hair” who had a mishap when he rode without his shoes 🙂 yikes… You can read his story through here. Here’s a shot of him…
We finished the ride without any incidents. However, my feet were in pain after enduring the obstacles of the Loop. Fortunately I was already wearing the right shoes for the after ride. As much pain I was in, I was now in comfort wearing the Crocs.
Moral of the story, keep your riding gear together 🙂
