Couple of questions. Where is the best place to rest your right foot? Can you rest the front of your foot on the break pedal as long as you don't depress it? It seems a little awkward to find a good place for it.
I agree. Keep your footsie off the brake pedal till you need it. You are suffering from a little lack of confidence but call it needing more comfort. It probably happened to all of us. Its not a good idea to ride the pedals in a car so don't ride the pedals on the bike.
