Unigeezer's paper plate analogy is half correct. It is true, you need to hold your foot in about the same place but there is quite a bit of downward force needed to hold the peddle in a fixed location and prevent the wheel from rolling forward. It is easy to see this force if you look closely at the tire deflection during a free mount.
