Switching from SPD pedals to spd sl or other options..

    Very grateful for any advice here,

    Need to switch from SPD pedals as injured my feet over to a wider cleat pedal. Have just got the SPD SL'S and am finding the change in kick out motion daunting. Roads are dangerous enough as is....

    3 Questions:

    1.Spd was a simple kick to the side / with SPD SL it involves turning knee inwards and kicking out with heel. Has anyone made this change successfully from SPD to SPD SL?

    2.Are there any other pedal options that have a similar simple kick out to the side as SPD'S?

    3.Last option if above fails is back to old school flat pedals and half toe clips.. Anyone managing sportives/club rides with old school flat pedals?

    Thanks a million again for any info you can give me.
