Go Clipless is a blog providing commentary, reviews, and resources for mountain bikers and cycling enthusiasts. We provide a unique view into the cycling industry through straight talk, humor, and sometimes some good old fashioned facts. Go Clipless is part story-telling, part stream of consciousness, and part editorial - all with an edge of hipster glib. We don’t take our selves too seriously, but our readers sure do.
Many people ask about the name "Go Clipless." The idea is to capture that turning point when bike riding goes from being a recreational hobby to one where it becomes part of your lifestyle. For me that turning point happened when I made the move from standard pedals to clipless pedals. To me the term "Go Clipless" captures the idea of "finding a passion," "becoming serious," or "taking one's skills to the next level."
