Default Show us your Bike next to a Bridge

Post a pic of a Bridge or a Dam in your area, with the only stipulation that your bike is in at least one of the pics of the structure.

I went on a Bridge Tour today, so I'll go first.
I live in an area where there are a few rivers and therefore lots of old Bridges.

Bridge #1 over the Conestoga River just outside Conestoga
One lane and very rickety.



Bridge #2 over the Grand River on a dirt road



Bridge #3, this is a beauty, Ontarios only covered bridge over the Grand River




Bridge #4 again over the Grand River



Bridge #5, small and over a tributary of the Grand River


Bridge #6, a popular style in these parts although this is a very small version



Bridge #7 in the town of Elora again the Grand



Bridge #8 a modern boring bridge


Bridge #9 closed for business

Hi Pete!

Does this one look familiar?



Almost identical design to one of your pics. Maybe a different size. I think my bridge was somewhere a few kilometres north of Elora.

Have you ever been to the Eastern Townships in Quebec? There are dozens of historical covered bridges. It's heaven for a bridge nut. I drove around in a car and did a quest to see as many as I could. It would be great on a motorcycle as the area is beautiful. It's also very anglo. Recommended.

Yes, and in the same condition.
I've been to Quebec a few times but not in the townships, very good riding in the laurentions

Great pics, keep them coming.
