I’ve never been to Japan, but I have heard some pretty crazy stories and seen many crazy sh*t from that xenophobic East Asian country. This bridge is one of those crazy sh*t.
The Eshima Ohashi Bridge, as it is called, is downright scary and has to be one of the craziest in the world. It has slopes as steep as a 5.1% gradient, which will give any cyclist a good workout.
Looking at the cars on it, they might as well be on a rollercoaster. The bridge is so high and steep in order to allow tall ships to pass underneath.
That’s some crazy engineering right there…
