    On today’s Sunny NSH bike ride, we biked by the remnants of the world’s longest floating bridge from Seattle, Wa. It is tied up in the Pitt River and looking for a buyer since 2016. The 50-year-old pontoon was a four-lane bridge that crossed Lake Washington.
    From there we rode northeast along the Pitt and Alouette Rivers. We took a nice detour of 10 km on a soft single track grassy trail to Pitt Lake. On our return from the canoe rental shop, we stop in at the Swan-e-Set Golf Resort.  All in all, the views from the trail were spectacular. One could see Golden Ears and Mt. Baker in the distance as well as some elusive peaks like Judge Howie. We biked approx. 64 km in total at a nice “holiday” pace.

    Interesting. It would not be cheap to transport the pontoon bridge all the way to Pitt Lake. Why did they do it, as opposed to just let it wait for a buyer at, or near, the original site?
