comment Do clipless pedals that can have toeclips exist?
Attaching toe clips to one side of a clipless pedal is not a good idea. Mac's suggestion that you add clips and straps to a one-sided (or half-and-half) clipless pedal is workable, but potentially dangerous. The toe-clips that dangle well below the pedal level are likely to drag and/or catch on something on the ground at some point thus increasing your risk of a crash. An alternative to traditional clips-and-straps is the so-called "Power Grip", which could tuck away more easily when using the cleat. Or just swap between pedals. Quick-release pedals (marketed for folding bikes) would help.
