I grew up in Minneapolis, I can't remember how many different bridges I have crossed over the Mississippi, either in vehicles or on a motorcycle. But now that I think of it I can't remember ever bicycling across more than one of them. There were a couple that instead of a paved deck had steel grating that would make your motorcycle wobble all over the place if you had not remembered it was there.

Probably my favorite was Washington Ave bridge, that split the University campus into two parts and I walked across that bridge hundreds of times between classes. Not sure how many times I rode a bicycle across it.
