Before the Bayonne Bridge was getting worked on, I biked over it a few times on route to going over the GWB and onto NYC. I did a few routes, depending on where I started.

There is a bus, with a front bike rack, that takes cyclists over the bridge. Riders use it on days when the paths are not open.

Eastbound Plowing

I have seen the path plowed from Flatbush Ave eastward so that the person that raises the drawbridge can drive to the parking spot along the route.
