Having a hard time clipping in and out of your bike pedals? We’ve all been there! That’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide to give you all of the information you need to know about clipping into indoor cycle bike pedals. Become a master on how to adjust your clips for the best indoor cycling experience!
WHY CLIP IN DURING YOUR CYCLE BIKE WORKOUT? While there’s nothing wrong with cycling in your regular training shoes, making the switch from your regular trainers to clipping in with cycling shoes will provide a more comfortable, efficient, and safer ride.
If you’re new to clipping in during your cycle bike workout, it’s important to ensure you have the right type of pedals, shoes, and cleats for the job. While there are a variety of different clips and cleats you can select from when cycling, most indoor bikes, including Sunny cycle bikes, use SPD-compatible pedals.
However, only some Sunny cycle bikes come equipped with SPD-compatible pedals. So, if you’re interested in clipping in but your bike didn’t come with SPD-compatible pedals, you may need to purchase SPD-compatible pedals separately.
HOW TO CLIP INTO SPD-COMPATIBLE PEDALS Once you’ve ensured you have the right pedals, shoes, and cleats to clip in while cycling, you’re ready to clip in and get riding!
To clip in, follow these simple steps: Rotate the pedals so that the pedal you’re clipping into is at its lowest position in a full rotation. Turn the pedal with the front of your shoe so it’s parallel with the ground. Toe in with the front of your clip. Apply a good amount of pressure to pop the back of the clip in - depending on the tightness of your clip, it may help to stand to get enough power into it.
HOW TO CLIP OUT TO SPD-COMPATIBLE PEDALS Once you’re ready to get off your bike, you may find yourself at a loss for getting out of the clips! Follow along with these simple steps to clip out and get off your bike with ease.
o clip out, follow these simple steps: Rotate the pedals so that the pedal you’re clipping out of is at its lowest position in a full rotation. Push down and twist outward with your heel. Finish by pulling your foot up and away from the pedal to completely detach from your cleat. HOW TO ADJUST TIGHTNESS OF THE CLIPS Many SPD-compatible pedals including the ones that come equipped on some Sunny bikes offer adjustable tension. If possible, loosen the clip tension on your pedals so that you can clip and unclip super easy as you’re learning. You can always tighten it later once you’ve got the hang of it!
To loosen your clips on the Sunny SPD-compatible pedals (or decrease the tension): using a 3mm Allen wrench, twist the adjustment bolt on the rear of the pedal counterclockwise. To tighten your clips on the Sunny SPD-compatible pedals (or increase the tension): using a 3 mm Allen wrench, twist the adjustment bolt on the rear of the pedal clockwise.
Clipping in appears to be pretty simple, but it may take some time to get used to. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you have trouble the first few times. Keep practicing and follow the above below to improve your experience. You’ve got this!

HOMEMADE LIGHT & CRISPY CINNAMON ROLL WAFFLES RECIPE
▶️ CINNAMON ROLLS INGREDIENTS - 2 Cups All Purpose Flour (plus a little more for dusting) - 1-2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (just enough to form a soft dough, can also use 100% All Purpose Flour) - .25oz packet Rapid Rise Instant Yeast - 1 tsp Salt - ¾ Cup Warm Almond Milk (or milk of choice) - ½ Cup Warm Water - ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil - ¼ Cup Organic Pure Maple Syrup
▶️ CINNAMON ROLL FILLING INGREDIENTS - ½ Cup Unsalted Butter, softened - ¾ Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar - 1 tsp Cinnamon
▶️ BUTTERCREAM INGREDIENTS - ¾ Cup Organic Cane Sugar (can sub coconut sugar but won’t dissolve as well) - 6-8 Tbsp Boiling Water - 2 Cups Unsalted Butter, softened - 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste
▶️ RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS 1. Combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, instant yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add warm milk, water, coconut oil, and maple syrup and blend until the mixture is combined and smooth. 2. Knead in whole wheat flour, a little at a time until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to add too much flour or the end result will be hard and dry. 3. Cover and let dough rest for 5 minutes or so. While you wait, prepare the cinnamon roll filling by combining the cinnamon with the coconut sugar. 4. Place dough on a large flat surface and roll into a rectangle. 5. Spread softened butter on top of the dough, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture, spreading evenly to coat all the dough. 6. Roll the dough into a tight log. 7. Cut into 12 even rolls. You can cut off the ends and discard them, so you’re left with even-sized rolls. 8. Lay in a pan or on a flat surface, cover, and let rise for 30 minutes (If making overnight, place in the fridge, then take them out to rise in a warm place for 30-60 minutes or until puffy). 9. Turn on the waffle iron, and allow it to warm. Once ready, spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray, and place a cinnamon roll in the center of the iron. Press down to flatten the roll, and cook according to waffle iron instructions. 10. And voila! Fluffy, delicious cinnamon roll waffles.
▶️ HOW TO MAKE THE BUTTERCREAM 1. Combine sugar and boiling water, stirring until sugar is totally dissolved. 2. Blend butter with a mixer or by hand until creamy (the softer the easier). 3. Once smooth, blend in sugar mixture until well incorporated. Taste as you add, that way you can change the level of sweetness to your preference. 4. Finally add the vanilla, continuing to beat until fully incorporated and smooth.
