Cyclelife May Challenge- Bridges

Well my entry for the bridges competition doesn’t even go over water, it’s a bridge over a railway….boring.

It was an important thoroughfare for horses and carriages a hundred years ago. Then devoted to cars

Here’s my ride

Sorry this site is testing my Neo-Luddite tendancies but I’ll get it eventually

See ya later



PS I finished the seven challenges and even wrote one of my ‘tall tale’ poems

I live in the hills just east of the city of Perth, Western Australia and I've loved cycling all my life, From riding to primary school when I was 8 years old to cycle touring as a grumpy old man. Cycling is freedom on two wheels and I love getting on my bike at any opportunity.

    I love the old pic of the Horseshoe Bridge – you almost wouldn’t recognise it today. I can’t imagine four lanes of traffic on it either. There’s a section of road in Sydney approaching Tom Ugly’s Bridge in the southern suburbs that has such tight lane width that whenever we drove it when we lived in Sydney I was sure a truck was going to put a scrape on Nigel’s car on the curves. I hated that section of road! Great to see your Dad smiling – I hope he is comfortable and has as good of quality of life as possible. All the best!

      Sorry for the delay. I was slack then lost my password. A lot of the roads in Perth are now being de-car-ed with fewer lanes and more pedestrian areas, so I think we’re slowly moving from the car madness mentality. Lucky you can find lots of quiet lanes where you live but riding here is pretty good as there is good cycling infrastructure, more likely I’ll crash into another cyclist.
