Preference is everything when it comes to pedals. Platform pedals are popular for short distances and recreational rides while clipless pedals are often adopted by more regular riders that want the added control and more efficient power transfer. Toe clipped or cage pedals are a fairly popular inbetween that offer more retention than a platform pedal but not quite as much control as a clipless setup.
