Laidback good luck on your bucket list. nothing like a wooden roller coaster ride.
MplsCoaster yes I thought about you while we were that close. Thought about riding in Minnesota but opted for Iowa instead which would put us a little closer to home. We stopped over in Minneapolis for a night years ago on our way to ride the Gandy Dancer trail.
Okay... last stop Iowa and the High Trestle Trail. What a great trail and bridge! First night there we rode the 3 miles out to the bridge to see it lit up. The next morning we went back to the trail head and rode the entire trail out and back for a total of 53 miles. on the way back we stopped at a neat bar right on the trail the Flat Tire Lounge for a few beverages.
I should have a video of the bridge at night soon.
Is that graffiti on that bridge? If so... how?
Ha! I didn't even think of that. During high water? While some scaffolding was in place? Repelling?
Here's the bridge at night http://youtu.be/yKZAe714TQY
This one kinda long. Try and suffer through it http://youtu.be/5Ia9hYK9wCM
Cool videos, cool bridge. I'd like to see more big art projects like that around here.
the bridge is nice. they're working on converting an old railroad bridge to a walk/bikeway here, to cross the river bettwenn in. and ky., but i think it's still a year or so from being finished.

edit: i guess the railroad bride conversion is a popular thing. i was looking for a link to add and saw nearly the exact same thing is being done further up (down?) the river bettween ky. and ohio.
start where you are
use what you have
do what you can. arthur ashe
It's done a lot on rail-to-trail conversions. Some pretty amazing old wood trestle brides and others as well. That looks like a really nice one where you're at.
Here's a couple we've been on in Idaho part of a rails-to-trails.
Here's one we rode in Chattanooga Tennessee that's not part of a rail-to-trail
Just realized I've got some of other our out-of-town trips/rides in other threads. If anyone hasn't seen them and is interested...
Great video of the high tressel bridge!
Kinda reminded me of a fun house ride (optical illusion) only on a bike, way off the ground
You've got a great visual library of the rails-to-trails revolution, thanks goodness for Just-In-Time Engineering
Thanks and that's the same thing I was thinking. "Whacky Shack" is what I told the wife. That was our local fun house ride.
If anyone is interested in finding rails-to-trails and other paths like these you can see what we've ridden by state here.
About 6 months ago a casino opened up near us. Not really our thing but today we finally decided to go check it out.
Wheat harvest and the grain trucks stirring up quite a bit of dust.
No bike parking at casino.
Free hotdogs today. I should have ate more to offset our gambling loses and beverage costs.
