feet slip why.
Can someone help me explain why sometimes my feet slip when I am riding. Do you think it could be because of what I wear on my feet. Or do you think it is because I have only just started to ride. Has anyone got any ideas of how to resolve this problem.

Stupidity gets you 2 of these:
It could be that you're new, your shoes, your pedals or a combination.
5:10 shoes have the reputation of being the grippiest in the b*ke community. I like shoes w/ a definate heal, others preffer flat soled shoes.
Pedals w/ more and/or longer pins would help. Pedal Thread.
This and your tires question could have both been asked in the same thread. If you forget to say something in a post you can edit it for up to 10 minutes. Or add another post if the time ran out instead of a bunch of threads.
Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist

As a beginning rider, you probably don't want to be using pedals with metal pins yet. Even plastic pins make a big difference if they nail your shins, but something smoother is better for starting out.
For better feedback, tell us about your shoes, your pedals and your amount of time riding so far.
