Former Northfielder John Gaddo posted this photo on his Facebook wall last week with the caption: Use your imagination.
Yes, he cleaned it on his trials fat bike and innocently asked, "Hey Griff, have you done this one yet?"
I replied, "John, I usually just ride my Mary Poppins hybrid bike around Northfield (sans helmet) so no, I’ve not tried this railing on the 2nd St. bridge. But now I guess I’ll have to."
I gave it a go early Sunday morning. Bad idea, as the iron rail was wet from dew and thus, very slippery. I made it half way or so on my 4th try but subsequent crashes took their toll, despite the body armor I was wearing.
Here’s my 40-second video.
