    Bridges of Eastern Canada

    The Weir Canal Bridge, "The Hood" Port Colborne.





    Spotted a Bald Eagle flying around the Weir Canal today. It was too quick for me to photograph.

    Nice spot! Someone else I know spotted an eagle recently. I hope they are making a comeback. I 've certainly seen more hawks over the last few years

    We love riding in Kolapore... scenic and trails are diverse. There are a few memorable bridges

    Bridges of Eastern Canada-p4290597.jpg

    Singlesprocket and I helped the Kolapore users group build some bridges
    Bridges of Eastern Canada-p9220899_zps60eb24fe.jpg

    We worked with Pinkheaded Bug and locals
    Bridges of Eastern Canada-p9220901_zpsd267f4ab.jpg

    The bridges we built held up well
    Bridges of Eastern Canada-p9220902_zps4c164799.jpg

    If my memory serves me correct, we built 3 bridges that day!
    Bridges of Eastern Canada-p9220907_zps9bf87b12.jpg

    From our last ride in 2014.. fish were biting and the mosquitoes were ravenous too

    Early spring ride (too wet for Don Trails), we did a couple years ago from the Brickworks, and throughout Rosedale. We encountered several historical bridges including this one

    A few from today.

    Foot and bike bridge over Rouge river at the mouth.


    From a different angle.


    GO and VIA, same place.


    This one below (Highland creek by East Point park) made news a week or two back after they caught terrorists on it plotting to sabotage it to cause a VIA crash.

    Cyclelicious, this is a wonderful thread!

    I guess every forum can't be a passion forum but listening to arguments about who is a "real" trail builder gets old. Well done.

    this is not about who is a better trail builder biggie. it's about posting what you know about building trail, politics aside... it's about providing information to people how to build trail in eastern canada... and to show what projects you have worked on...

    ^^ What can I say Biggie?... I like bridges! and so do others. I like riding them, I like stopping and enjoying the view and I've lent a hand to help build a few on a small scale. It's nice to learn about others experiences. I'm glad you like bridges too.

    Singlesprocket, Jerry and I had a fun ride exploring Clairville today. We got to cross the bowstring bridge twice. Unfortunately the river was unrideable (too much snow cover)

    As much as I begrudgingly accept that wider bridges in the Don are probably a good idea from a community safety standpoint, I do miss the old school sketchiness. Maybe we should paint the outline of the old skinny on the new wide-ass bridges to document history for all who pass.

    Lots of pictures of people riding on partially frozen rivers and streams. I guess the fat bikes probably would float if the ice broke.

    Bridges of Eastern Canada-5-sherway-drive.jpg
    Sherway Dr Bridge

    Year constructed: 1909

    Type: Pedestrian bridge over Etobicoke Creek

    Ownership: City of Toronto

    Sometimes referred to as the Middle of the Road Bridge, the historically important span is the first Canadian example of a reinforced concrete truss. The bridge was part of an important transportation corridor that connected York and Peel counties and lives on as a local landmark.

    Sauce: Toronto?s oldest bridges have lasted quite a span | Toronto Star

    As I wait another week or two for the trails to melt I'm sticking to road/gravel.

    Here's a cool swing bridge spanning the Rideau Canal in Burritts Rapids, Ontario. The town was originally settled in 1793 and the single lane swing bridge built in 1897. I saw it in operation this past summer where a single individual can crank it up and out of the way.
