Get your hands on some cycling shoes and you will notice your performance increases dramatically. Here are some of the best budget models available today.

At the bottom end of the market, the B-Twin 100 road shoes from Decathlon are a good option for those new to clips. At just $36 you won’t waste too much of your money if you don’t like them.

Around the same price are the Muddyfox Tour 100 Low cycling shoes, with a more rugged design suited to off-road adventures.

Up around $60, you will get Shimano MT34 touring shoes, another durable-looking shoe that should handle a mixture of terrains with ease.

If you want road-specific shoes, you can do a lot worse than the Mavic Aksium II. For about $70, these shoes offer a nice stiff sole for good power transfer, as well as reflective highlighting, a boon for nightime rides.

Alternatively, try the Shimano RP1, a road cycling shoe with an unfussy two-strap fastening system and a reflective heel patch for visibility. They are compatible with both two-bolt and three-bolt pedals, too, so you shouldn’t have to invest in a new set to match your shoes.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
