As I traveled around North America for 12 years with the Spinning program to well over a hundred clubs certifying instructors, one thing I encountered again and again was a lack of understanding about toe straps and how they work. Often they were installed incorrectly, with the loose end of the strap pointing to the ground instead of upwards so the rider could reach down and tighten them easily. When riders don’t learn how to tighten the strap correctly, they never really ride with a full engagement to the pedal. Any looseness of the foot in the toe strap means lost energy. I created this video to help you explain to your students the way to make sure those toe straps are tight like they are supposed to be!
