I’ve never been to Japan, but the stories and footage that comes from it are always mental. This bridge is no exception.
The Eshima Ohashi bridge is one of the craziest and scariest in the world.
The two lane concrete carriageway has slopes as steep as a 5.1% gradient. Which any cyclist will tell you, is STEEP!
It looks more like a roller coaster than a road bridge.
It is so high and steep to allow tall ships to pass underneath. I can’t help but think maybe the slope could have been a bit longer to avoid it being so steep!
