Pedal selection is, like most bike- related topics, a matter of personal preference and budget.

 

Some cyclists will always be more comfortable using a flat pedal (with great variety available based on the type of cycling you will do).  That said, most cycling enthusiasts are more likely to choose either pedals with toe clips and straps or clipless pedals, that combine a use-specific pedal with a cleat, that is attached to the cycling shoes.  For professionals and enthusiasts, this last style (clipless) is always preferred since performance on the bike is improved by their use.

 

Newbies to the joys of cycling can initially be intimidated by the idea of being "locked" into position on a bike, but the benefits of fit and performance generally out way those concerns and it's a short lived worry that a few rides will dissipate.  Happy Cycling!
