They are totally fine for that in fact some pros race with them. They are just a tad bit slower for clipping in. No maintenance or adjustments needed. Also the cleat is protected to help with walking, although it is not a fully recessed cleat like the SPDs and other MTB style pedals. The cool part with the longer platform area is that it makes them far easier to adjust angle than SPDs. With SPDs it is very difficult to only move them a degree or two because you are turning it right at the cleat. With these the housing is 2 or 3" long so it's like a longer more precise way. Fit is everything when cycling any distance, and cleat position and angles are vitally important.
