Before even taking off the straps, you have to get off the bike if you’re already not.
Remember when you installed the toe cages, you had fastened the straps? Now, you’re going to do the opposite, meaning you loosen the straps and remove them from the toe cages

Some bolts fix your toe cages to the pedals. You can locate the bolts simply by flipping the pedals. While facing the pedal’s bottom, you should notice the tiny bolts.
Step 3: Unscrew the Bolts
In this step, you’ll need help from a 3mm Allen wrench. Try to unscrew the bolts. Are they too tight to unbolt? It happens when you use the toe cages for a long time.
In this situation, you can use pedal oil and simply make the grip on the pedals soft. Then, it will be easy to loosen the bolts, turn them anticlockwise to make it happen.
Step 4: Remove the Toe Cages
Now, remove the cages, and you are done!
But what if the toe cages come with the pedals of your peloton?
In this case, you have to loosen the pedals first. To do so, use the Allen wrench and turn the right-side pedal clockwise and anti-clockwise for the left pedal.
Once you take off both the pedals and the toe cages, you may want to install the pedals. It’s pretty simple, just counter the process you removed the pedals.
