Fredericton Railway Bridge

This is the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge in Fredericton. It is the best piece of cycling infrastructure in my city, and possibly the province,  because it is grade separated from cars, and has an exclusive right-of-way for active transport users. It is spacious, has great views of the city, and connects the North and South sides of the city.

The paths here tend to be grade separated, lined with trees, and quite pleasantly graded. This is because they are former rail right-of-ways, and this also means they tend to be surrounded by industrial areas. So definitely a mixed bag because while they are very pleasant they do not go where most people want to go.
