The pedal is the part of a bicycle that you push with your feet in order to propel your bike forward. The pedal provides the connection with your bike between your foot and shoe, and is therefore one of the most important parts of your bicycle.
While there are a number of different pedal types available, there are really only two different types of pedals that are popular in the touring bike world: SPD and platform.
