Of the more than 600,000 bridges in the U.S., more than 60,000 are rated as "structurally deficient". Several hundred of those structurally deficient bridges are in Philadelphia and Montgomery County - but the decay is usually not obvious when you ride over them. (Hint: When you see a vehicle weight limit sign on a bridge - that bridge is a structurally deficient.) On this ride we will examine infrastructure decay up close. We will also visit some interesting bridges that are new or restored, as well as some beautiful old bridges designed by Paul Cret (a famous Philadelphia architect). This scenic ride (yes, it really is scenic) will start at the Azalea Garden behind the Art Museum and meander 15 miles through center city. Included will be a journey down a little-known underground street in the heart of center city (yes, you will now know the "secret" entrance to this street), a stop where we will have a birds-eye view looking down at an amazing construction project, a ride underneath the subway (underneath the subway, not in it), a look at a 5,000 ton, 19th century church that 80 years ago was put on rollers and moved 40 feet, and of course lots of crumbling concrete and corroding steel. The weather forecast for Sunday is great! The only thing raining on us might be pieces of concrete. (only kidding - I think). Make sure your bike is in good condition. Bring a spare tube, water, and HELMET. You must wear a HELMET. The ride will be at a leisurely pace and we will be making plenty of stops. You should be comfortable riding on city streets. If you have any questions, email me or call. We will be back at the Art Museum by 12:30. Cue sheets will not be available.
