Oregon has lots of rivers and bicyclists, ergo a lot of pix of bikes on bridges.

You can kind of see part of my bike (1984 Bianchi Tipo Corsa) on the Verrazzano Bridge. New York 5 Borough Bike Tour. Please excuse goofy-looking helmet/hat ... currently looking for newer helmet!

a few shots from the Chain of Rocks Bridge that crosses the Mississippi river just a bit north of St. Louis. This used to be part of the famous Route 66, but is now solely a pedestrian and bike bridge. The bridge is 5,353 feet long, and is reported to be the longest bridge dedicated to non-motorized traffic.
Here's the wiki page

near the west end of the bridge....

also near the west end, showing the bend in the bridge. This is not a wide bridge, and the bend was reputed to cause some trouble with the auto traffic at times.
https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/...d284e5_c_d.jpg

on the downstream side of the bridge, you can see these curious structures. While they look like little chateaus or tiny castles, they are actually the water intakes for the St. Louis water supply! There are videos somewhere showing a quick tour inside one of them.

Love those!!!

I believe this is the Pinkerton High Bridge on the Great Allegheny Passage. You can't see much of the bike under the hulking, hirsute rider, but it's there somewhere.

Funny story, the day before this picture was taken, when I was wearing a different jersey, my brother and I stopped at a pub in Ohiopyle and I asked the waitress to recommend a beer from their large selection. She recommended a Black Butte Porter.
