Crow Bomb

8 Jun

Calgary’s not cool enough to have a Zoo Bomb like Portland, Oregon does. But we’ve got a big hill, and a high-speed bridge over a river, so that’s all the raw materials we need to make our own ride: the Crow Bomb over the Bow River on Crowchild Trail.

At rush hour this roadway is virtually a parking lot, and rather benign to ride. But at mid-day, as in the video below, the traffic is moving at 60, 70 km/h or more, and it’s a little more… engaging to ride it then.  Check it out for yourself some time – just make sure you’re on your game.
