1) Ease yourself into using them. It’s going to be weird at first (especially if you aren’t used to them on a road bike either). Until you feel comfortable getting into and out of them, don’t attempt things that would push your abilities too far. That said…

2) Stick with it. There’s a good debate on whether or not clipless are better than flats, but if you do want to go the clipless route, be ready to learn on them. The first few months are probably gonna suck. You’re gonna fall over where you otherwise wouldn’t, you’ll have a difficult time starting up on hills and it can be aggravating. But after a few months of flailing around you get the hang of it and it becomes second nature.

Hope this helps. Good luck and have fun!
