Which Touring Pedals ?
Am looking to do LEJOG and intend to do so using SPDs pedals. Question is – which ones ?. I’m used to using SPDs.
Don’t fancy using my normal MTB SPDs, as I anticipate long days in the saddle would just create hotspots on the feet. I’ve looked at several sets of the Shimano sets that are recommended for touring/commute, but most of the clip-in mechanisms appear to still be raised proud of the surrounding platform and may still prove uncomfortable.
I’m not bothered whether they will be double sided or not, I’m looking for the combination of being able to click-in for efficiency, but being able to spread the weight over a larger platform area whilst clipped in.
Anyone any ideas/suggestions please ?.

I have both the M324 and A600.
M324 Only use them on long jaunts or on the tandem. One side standard spd with platform either side for support and work with my shoes. Other side a flat if I fancy a change
A600 on my road bike. great pedals but will be swapping them for something double spd sided when they die.Posted 4 years agoRAGGATIPMember
For that ride I’d look to be using something like the Specialized Tahoe Sport shoe. I’m not a fan of and so would not recommend the M520s as they’re a bit heavy for a road bike. I’ve purchased some Time XC8 ATACs which I’ll be trying out on my new build but I’m not going to recommend them either as I haven’t tried them out yet.Posted 4 years ago
Regarding hotspots spd pedals aren’t an issue, for me at least on daily rides in excess of 100 miles. Just don’t wear shoes that trap water in. Your feet can get wet but wear woolie boolies or something to keep them warm then at least your shoes will dry out quicker.
