The weather was perfect yesterday morning when I rolled out of my house for the first ride of 2015. I'm out of shape. This was really apparent when I hit my first moderate climb and my heart rate and breathing rate soared. I'm planning to slowly build up my fitness by riding about five times per week and increasing my distance each week. I've got to get my butt used to sitting in the saddle for long periods of time. Sorry for over-saturating my photos. I'll try to tone it down in the future.
Quick stop at the Woodshed for a glass of iced tea.
Fort Worth PD Bike Patrol. I believe these are personal bikes that these officers are using for their off-duty jobs.
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.
