Show us your bike @ the bridge

I went back 5 pages in pic's and couldn't find a thread about bridges and bikes so...here's a new thread.
Show us your bike at the bridge

I'll get it started...
Reportedly the highest bridge in california at 730 foot above the water this is the bridge over the american river canyon at the confluence of the N+M forks of the river. I believe it was completed in the late 70's. It is currently undergoing upgrades.



The bridge on ponderosa way crosses the N fork of the American river.
Long time destination for swimming, jumping, parties ect.
Until recently...as they now charge for parking, day use and such.
Being part of the cal state parks system, all the regulations you can think of are in effect.
No fires, no bottles, no, no, no...
and the road is 15mph!

That's the ticket

keep em coming! I'd say a "bridge" might be just a plank over a culvert, or a submerged pad of concrete.
Typicaly a water crossing...OR? What else?

Below this slab bridge crosses webber creek at the end of Jurgens road.

This was the oldest bridge in the state of Arkansas still in use.

Rated 3 tons, and an ass crossed it at 18,000 pounds a few weeks ago and it collapsed.

Oldest bridge in Arkansas, circa 1876, but you can't get on it anymore.

Bike pic from it.


The bike is there....
