    A couple of weeks ago I bought myself a pair of cycling shoes. I'm still getting used to them as I've only worn them a few times, but so far so good. Up until now I've been riding in my hiking shoes but I figure the shoes made for bicycling are supposed to improve power transfer from your foot to the pedal so I thought I'd give them a try.
