Old bikes and older bridges
Bridge Club is a multi-media resource dedicated to riding motorcycles over, under or near bridges. Or just motorcycles. Or just bridges.

The fifth rule stipulates that if there's a 'Y' in the day then the bridge itself is optional.July 2011 Respryn Bridge - Latitude/Longitude: 50:26.3751N 4:40.7095W
