Biking Over the New Coventry Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge

The Coventry Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge over the Queensway links the Ottawa train station to a semi-professional baseball stadium, but more importantly facilitates a traverse across the Queensway highway, the most predominant north/south barrier that stretches the width of the city. The following video captures the hasty termination of the oficial launch as it quickly wound down due to cold weather (-14ºC not including wind chill) I filmed the following traverse heading north over the bridge, and down the ramp on the other side to the edge of the stadium.

The following map describes my ride to the event from Centretown (blue line) and back (purple line). The blue cyclist emoji is where the momentous occasion unfolded.

Et voila!
