This is the Mendota bridge. It's the last bridge on the Minnesota River before it meets the Mississippi River. According to Wikipedia, Mendota means "meeting of the waters."
I like riding over it. It leads me to places that don't feel like city. Sometimes I need a break from city riding. City riding contains constant interruptions. When I ride this route, at least at this point and on the East side of the bridge, there are few interruptions.
I need to make sure I get in at least one of these rides a week.
