Depending on what side the pedal is you can use left or right hand "twist" drill bits. So the hole is drilled in the direction to undo the pedal spindle thread.
A really stupid question, but I thought pedals all had to be undone in the same direction which is towards the back of the bike? Please feel free to throw tomatoes at me if you like! :p
In order for both pedals to be undone that way, one (the left) has a reversed thread.
Consider that as a tomato thrown at you.
