    Cyccommute's Post Your Picture Thread: Bridges edition

    Bridges. They keep us from getting our feet wet. They make water crossings so much easier. Some are scary. Some are works of art. Show 'em!

    US37 bridge over the Missouri River at Brownsville, NE


    Swingbridge in Council Bluffs, IA


    Lexington, MO bridge. The scariest bridge I've ever ridden across. Only rust holds it together



    US66 Chain of Rocks Bridge across the Mississippi at St Louis




    Eads Bridge, St. Louis

    Long day in the rain. The sign said bridge out six miles ahead. You never really know if it's really out or just impassable for cars. We ride on:



    Yup. It's really out. The detour route is a long way around. We found a path through the mud and across a small stream.

    There's a terrific little drawbridge on the Erie Canal in Holley, NY. The town allows biker, hiker, and boater camping along the park near the bridge.



    There are bathrooms with nice showers in the park for the campers. See the drawbridge operator for the keycode for the bathroom door. The bridge operator was a super nice guy. He gave me a tour of the controls and we got to raise the bridge for a passing boat while I was up there. He took my picture in the control tower.

    Great pics cyccommute. I especially like the spectacular Navajo Bridge.

    Need a little help. I've got a bridge pic I'd like to post here, but my efforts, using the pic icon, have failed. How do you post insert a picture in a post? Couldn't find a "help" section on here, and found nothing about how to post a picture from my search inquiries.

    I90 bridge in Seattle. I cross this 2x a day to commute (though usually not on this bike).



    Same bridge; different weather.

    I had to contribute too because this beautiful bridge is just a mile from my door. The motorist pay $4.00 dollars just to cross it but cyclist pay nothing. It enables me to enter Staten Island for free and believe it or not, I can then take the ferry into New York City for free too!! It's one of the few ways someone from New Jersey can enter into New York City without paying a dime!

    The bridge is in excellant condition but the Port Authority might tear it down because the large shipping boats are getting BIGGER and can no longer pass under the bridge! It would be an outrage if they destroyed this bridge just to let those boats pass.

    This is in front of the 1988 Olympic Bridge in Seoul, South Korea. A really cheesy Celine Dion song was playing through some crappy speakers along the bridge. The sound was terrible but the pictures turned out great!

    I use photobucket. Copy and past the image link into the text. Photobucket is a free service and let's you upload tons of pictures. Other photo websites let you do the same.

    If you want to add attachments (see Dahon.Steve spectacular picture above) click on the Manage Attachment buttons on the reply page. You'll get a pop-up which lets you attach a picture file.

    To everyone else, great pictures! I love bridges.

    Old ones: Tryst Falls MO


    Railroad ones: Council Bluffs, IA


    Historic ugly ones: Amelia Earhart Bridge, KS


    Tragic ones: Mt. St. Helens


    Even ugly ones that screw up the scenery: Sioux Falls, SD

    Although that one is right on the edge

    This might have been common but I thought it was unusual to see compressed wooden slats in order to produce the weight bearing arches



    Also a nice suspension crossing the Mississippi at Quincy, IL.

    Thanks for the tips. Alas, the only place I have the bridge pic saved is on CG, and the URL link is noted as 'invalid.' Least I know how to do it now.

    By the rude bridge that arched the flood
    Their flag to April's breeze unfurled
    Here once the embattled farmers stood
    And fired the shot heard round the world

    Here's one that's a couple of miles from my house. I've ridden across it many times. It's funny cause I have to put this link in cause I don't have a picture.

    http://www.newfield.netfirms.com/bridge.htm

    You take for granted what's in your own backyard. I'd definitely have a picture of it if I had seen it while touring. It's a beautiful old bridge.
