I'll call your old bridge, and raise you one old bridge:


I wish I'd known beforehand that the bridge opened at 9:00AM before I pedaled my way there. It's the halfway point for my planned goal of pedaling all the way to the St. Louis Arch this year.

I hate that steel grating road surface on those old bridges, when I'm driving in a car. It feels like the car wants to squirm all over the place.

Dirt roads get a little muddy during Georgia's new monsoon season. From my July 4th ride.

Ever ride on the twisty ascent to the tunnel in Zion? Last summer, I did this every day ... rode from Springdale and all through the park. Funny ... I never tired of it.
