It's usable Tommy, but I agree, it's not the best design. I don't know why they didn't replicate the ramp where they put steps. It looks a lot better than the old Penny Bridge though.

Hi Tommy. I would not have commented if I had not experienced using the bridge with a push bike. As it happened my bike was electric and weighed 65 lb, it wasn't the best experience, but it was usable. This was the bike.

Hi Tommy. Ice on the bridge is not the fault of bridge design, it's the Council's fault for not gritting. I got rid of the electric bike as I might as well have had a moped. I've gone back to a bike that weighs eleven pounds, what a difference.

You must know Tom Maloney? He's my mate's dad who lives on the other side to you. I'll certainly have a bevy with you in the Bellie's; I'm in there for the last few on most Saturday nights.
