Very nice work!
very nice no doubt, but for good old trailriding i prefer the agro, rustic feel better than the polished walk in the park look.

Yeah, but when you do contribute, it's always good stuff! I'd like to have that new bridge over the little creek in my back yard!

I agree. This one is located about 200 yards from the trailhead and will mostly be used by walkers/hotel guests. It needed railings.

A more typical trail bridge we built:

AWESOME! That's some really awesome work you've done. Bring's new meaning to the phrase "post whore" for me.

Why can't all bridges have railings? :eek:

Nice bridge! I like the built-in "safe havens" for the pedestrians for when the mtb'ers go roaring over. That's a great PR coup there Rad!

Great bridge Rob. I have to make it back up there next year. I can't believe I didn't make it to the whites this whole season.

Nice Rob! I hope you got a competent engineer to make sure that bridge is strong though! ;)
Hehe, it's so overbuilt it's kind of an embarrassment to us engineers, Rich. I needed the middle stringer to be able to use 2x decking; it's built strong enough to hold a party of people.

"Safe Havens", aka passing zones. :D Thanks Mike. We're lucky to have a town manager who is an avid MTBer, a great ally.

Yes! We were talking about routing a couple deck boards with "NEMBA" to put our signature on it.
