On one of the bridges across the marsh out on Jamestown Island, right after I built up my Nobilette a few years ago.

Beargrass Creek


Using the Schwinn SLT 12.2 to give an example of the worst kind of light for a photo. Also an example of how the main topic- the bike, itís all about the bike- can get completely lost in the background.

Anywayz- this is a freeway MUP in Líville KY , over Beargrass Creek I think. Itís working its way to the mighty mighty Ohio River. Mostly I -and the homeless- like this path as itís somewhat separated from the freeway by urban overgrowth. And itís near Seneca & Cherokee Parks. I recommend it as a Big4 Bridge to Parks connectionó after it gets opened back upÖ.apparently the alley I took to get on wasnít well blocked- but my exit sure was!!
cheers

It's just a bridge over a creek but I guess it counts.
I'd hate to try to cross that creek with my bike without that bridge
