Hoping to eventually post a photo, they are finally building a bike path bridge over the Patuxent River to connect rail trails between the DC and Baltimore areas. My usual 18 mile training ride might become MUCH longer...

How about a little baby bridge on a lonely country road over an irrigation ditch?

It's there, but on a different scale. Thomas's 3d print on his mtb river crossing in the back yard.

It's only part way to being vintage, although it is a Reynolds steel frame.

This is a nice old steel bridge that was integrated into the Tulsa River Parks trail system and my '84 Raleigh Competition. I had just bought this bike a few weeks prior to this picture and this was the first test ride after a complete overhaul. It was a beautiful unseasonably warm late November day where I had an opportunity to ride my age for my 57th.


This lovely old steel bridge is getting torn out as soon as a boring modern concrete bridge is finished that will take its place. EPA regulations and other such nonsense has made it impossible to save to integrate into the MUP that goes underneath it.
