I think I've lost count of how many times I've fallen off in my riding career, although it's about 7 so far this year , however I've only fallen over twice because I couldn't get my foot out, both on road. Hmm...maybe this 3 falls rule is only for road riding?? (Another reason why mountain biking is so much better than road riding (just kidding )).

So far i am scared sh*tless of these new pedal and shoes, bike is now one week old and i almost have a panic attack each time i ride it.

if you're worried about the "slips" with road shoes, get an mtb shoe. High end mtb are effectively road shoes with a raised sole (i said effectively). I've just bought a new pair of shoes for the road bike and, after trying a series of road shoes opted for an mtb pair. I stop a lot on the commute and there's a small walk involved. The sole really does give you confidence (and protects the cleats). Figured on the GWABR there'd be a bit of walking around too.
