When required in advance we may fit TOE-CLIPS (also known as PLASTIC BASKETS) that basically keep your foot in place on the pedals. These require some practice but not much particularly if you are using them loose as we recommend. For both cases above we recommend you to wear a sturdy pair of shoes, preferably sports shoes, which become important on multiday trips.
SPD/AUTOMATIC Pedals require special Shoes so they can match and clip. Due to the number of different systems and personal adjustments we strongly recommend you to bring not only your shoes but also your own pedals, guaranteeing a perfect match between the two.
