Cycling is an incredibly popular sport, enjoyed by numerous riders of all ages and biking experience. Many people wonder whether certain kinds of equipment, such as specialized shoes, can make you faster on a bike. Indeed, wearing cycling-specific shoes can help long-distance riders go faster without expending extra energy--but they are not necessarily beneficial to everyone. Cycling shoes are rigidly constructed with stiff soles that don’t bend or flex easily. For cyclists who take long rides they increase power transfer while pedaling and cause less fatigue than regular running or walking shoes would. However, those who use their bikes mainly for leisure activities or short rides may find having this stiff sole cumbersome and restrictive. Investing in cycling shoes thus has its pros and cons that must be taken into consideration before making the purchase--after all, it's up to each individual rider to decide what will make them happier and more successful in their cycling endeavors!
