Athlete Renee braved the snowstorm and went out and raced at the Boulder Reservoir. She and Coach Alison learned all about riding/running in the sand.
Both women's pedals got gunked up by the sand and they either couldn't clip out (Alison) or couldn't clip in (Renee). The solution? Loosen pedals and spray some lube in there. They may be too loose for other conditions, but with the sand/mud they will work perfectly. Just make sure to tighten the next time you ride.
