Most days I love my bicycle ride to and from work. The most dangerous parts of the ride are the bridges – there doesn’t seem to be enough space for both bike and car. Unfortunately, the City of Ottawa has not identified bike lanes on most bridges. Pretoria Bridge now has a bike lane and I don’t feel as exposed to danger riding that bridge.
Here’s the Bank Street bridge that I use on the way to work and the Smyth Road bridge (in the distance) that I take on my way home.
