one year, a few bikes and probably 4000+ miles later I thought I was pretty hot stuff . I was a little too confident and a little surprised at all the clipless falls I read about. I never had even a close call. Today I was also a tiny bit hungover. 8 miles in to a very windy ride I came to a stop and turned into a rookie. I couldn't unclip until I was at a pretty big lean. I did unclip but my shoe skated across the pavement and I went down surprisingly hard on my knee and heel of my hand. I then had another 12 miles of slightly hungover riding with a hurt hand and knee into a 10-20mph headwind. rough start to my ride but when I turned around and had a big tailwind, I was a rock star again. Moral of the story is if clipless pedals haven't gotten you yet they probably will. And tail winds cure almost everything.
