Anti tag item is a bandanna around the handlebar.

Cool.

The new objective is seven bridges, but not just any seven bridges. You'll need one of each of the following:

a suspension bridge
a cable stay or harp bridge
a cantilever bridge
an concrete or stone arch bridge
a truss bridge
a beam bridge
a draw bridge or lift bridge or swing bridge

Anti file photo item is a football anywhere in the picture.

Nice work Bikehigh at least I don't have to buy a bandana yet
All though I may have to go out & get a football now

p.s. Cable Stay bridges are basically the same as Suspension, just shorter requiring less cable

Need a clarification on this- I'd be inclined to say they are different in so far as, for example, the GW Bridge not being a cable stay bridge; and use this definition:

"Cable-stayed bridges look a lot like suspension bridges, but their support cables tie directly to the support towers. "


But it's your call BikeHigh.



PS: anyone in south NJ, or Philadelphia/Delaware or NYC area want to team up?

Most of the bridges around here are suspension bridges. There aren't many true cable stay bridges, at least I couldn't find any outside of NYC and one in CT and some across the Delaware river. Happy trails.

That's part of the reason I included a provision for teaming up in the rules .

And also why I asked if anyone south of me (or in NYC now ) was interested

You posted what I guess is the classic type of cable-stayed bridge: but it can have more than two upright beams with wire connections holding up the roadway.

So with that thought in mind, would this qualify?



The cables absolutely run from vertical beams, which support the roadway. Yes, it has an upper arch providing additional bracing. I have a more classical example of a cable stay bridge, but want to know if this would be ok for the type,


Separately,

DP gave me some guidance on the next two pictures which I thought were neat- three bridge types in one photo-- lift, truss (leading to the RR lift bridge), and cantilever.





And an oddity -- a Jackknife Bridge, which I guess is a kind of lift bridge.





PS-- extra credit for the color matched football eh?

I'm thinking the first pic is a type of pony truss bridge. It doesn't have multiple cables leading to a central stay. Second picture is a cool concept, but it's two bridges, not three, and I don't see a bike or football. Third bridge is a type of draw bridge.

Interesting football. Did you steal one of your wife's throw pillows?
