“Well, how am I SUPPOSED to stand then??” a very frustrated Mark Savoy asked, after getting yet another chainring mark on his right calf. His 126th of the year.
“No, I’m serious. Show me.”
In his first year of cycling, Savoy, a retired dentist, claims to have never been told that cyclists almost never stand with their right foot on the ground. That it’s almost always clipped into the (right) pedal, or casually slung over the saddle in a jaunty half-ready pose.
And no one ever told him to count how many times he gets tagged. He did that on his own.
