I'm one of those strange people who ALWAYS pedals off with the right foot. If the left foot is on the ground, the right foot is ready to pedal, and the right foot has to lift the right pedal to the correct position. Having the right foot clipped in makes this easy.
Maybe you pedal away with either foot?
I certainly don't.
That's one advantage that I've just forgotten really. I always push off with my right foot so leave it clipped in all the time. Without SPD I'd have to hook the pedal up to the right set off position before I go, either that or scoot the bike forward until I get enough momentum. With SPD I just pull up and push down and I'm away.
