While reading the "Idiot on a Bike" blog I came across a link to the Tweed Cycling Club. It's on their site that I found this wonderful video (it's one video in two parts) from 1955 of a London touring club taking a train to Rugby to do some sightseeing. Maybe this has been around on the internet for a while but it's the first time I've seen it.
I didn't realize that the word "bonk" has been used by cyclist since at least the 50's. It sounds more like something that somebody made up during the 80's.
I started this blog a couple of years ago when I used to print and sell t shirts with bike related designs. The name of my blog was the name of my business, Rat Trap Press. Rat Trap, referred to the old style road pedals, and Press of course referred to my screen printing press. Due to some sudden unexpected expenses I had to sell my screen printing equipment. I decided to stick with the name, RTP, and continue writing about my relaxed paced adventures around Fort Worth, Texas. Please take some time to say hello.
