I started this blog on January 4th 2008. Four years and 399 posts later I have decided to put this blog out to pasture. I haven't had time to keep up with it and it doesn't look like things will change anytime in the near future. All the content will remain, I may even update the links as they seem to be very popular, but I will not be posting anything new. I appreciate everybody's comments, suggestions, and assistance over the years. I have enjoyed getting to know you guys. I will still be following your blogs and commenting. I'll still be riding although I may actually leave home without my camera (weird). It's been fun.
P.S.-I will not be changing my email address or anything like that so contact me if any of you guys are going to be in town.
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.
