I frequently get asked why I ride my mountain bike in either flip flips or bare foot.

The answer is…

…comfort. Mostly.

If my feet do not feel good, I don’t feel good. It’s the end of summer and I don’t see any reason why I should ride my mountain bike wearing sneakers. It’s stupid and it’s uncomfortable.

I had someone ask me yesterday about hitting curbs while wearing flip flops. “Aren’t you afraid you’ll hit a curb?”

My answer…what curbs?

This is where suburbia goes to see if its doing suburbia right.

Shoes while mountain biking? Don’t be silly.
