Practice Before Riding Clipless – When you upgrade to clipless pedals, don’t immediately hit the road or trail. Instead, spend fifteen minutes or so getting used to the entry and release action of the pedals. To do this, just straddle the bike and click your right foot in and out many times. Then repeat with your left foot. The idea is to train the muscle memory so that when you’re actually riding, your feet will move the right way when you need to get them out of the pedals. A little practice before you ride goes a long way towards preventing a fall.

Griffin is a pitbull mix that we adopted from Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter at the age of 9 months back in 2012. Griffin, an intelligent, sweet, loving and well-mannered pup, is an amazing ambassador for Pit-bull type dogs everywhere.
Griffin helps us educate the public on this misunderstood breed and helps us carry out Pinups For Pitbulls (a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization) mission to "educate people about the history, temperament, and plight of the pit bull-type dog; raising awareness to rally against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and Breed Discriminatory Laws (BDL). PFPB’s goal is to restore the image of the pit bull-type dog to its former reputation of America’s companion animal, war hero, and family member."Please visit and "like" Pinups for Pitbulls on Facebook and Instagram!
