BHC Pic of the Week 2

This pic was taken as the cyclist was crossing the Zellstoff Bridge, spanning the Zwickau Mulde River north of the city of Zwickau in the German state of Saxony. This bridge used to be a railroad crossing taking the line to one of the mines nearby. Following its shutdown during the Reunification process, the bridge sat abandoned and it was only when the threat of removal was imminent in 2007 that locals fought and saved the bridge. It was renovated the following year and again this past year in 2017. Today, it continues to function as a crossing for bikers and hikers. This pic was taken in 2016.
