Cyclists may want to check out a new loop on the North Shore made out of a recycled bridge.
Metro Vancouver spokesman Bill Morrell says a bridge in the Coquitlam watershed was decommissioned back in 1999.
"So rather than throw away that steel and the bridge, Metro Vancouver explored what options there were for repurposing the bridge itself in a way that used the material and served a good public need."
The steel was cut up and paired with cedar logs from other old bridges to create two new pieces.
Now, those lay down a path from one side of the Seymour River to Bear Island in the middle, and across to the river's other shore.
It adds to an existing popular cyclist trail, now making it a 25-kilometre loop.
