commute photo essay - riverside bikeways II

We're going in sequence here. I love talking technical. This is one of the many basketball courts along the riverside parks, just past the Beixing Road Bridge in the background. This was shot on a nice sunny (hot!) day, almost a month before I undertook this project.

Kilometer marker, actually just a little bit down, and a bit useless, and not only because something or someone keeps knocking this one over. But the 7.5km mark is measured from a starting point way out in Muzha, by the Taipei Zoo, going along the Jingmei River. And as I mentioned, the bikeways aren't contiguous. So it's the 7.5km. Who cares? What does that mean? What is it doing here? What am I doing here?

In the background along the wall is an access gate. During major typhoons they close the gate in case of flooding.
