Is This A Wormhole?: Iowa Bridge For Walkers And Cyclists Has Cool Nighttime Light Effect

July 19, 2018


This is a video of the High Trestle Trail Bridge in Madrid, Iowa. The 2,640 foot long bridge used to service the Union Pacific Railroad. Now it's part of a multi-county nature path for hikers, cyclists and horseback riders, complete with this trippy LED light effect at night. Man, that is way sweeter than the bridge I have to cross on my bike to get back home at night. It doesn't have any cool light effects, just an angry troll who demands I pay him to cross every time or he'll club my legs into Jell-O. Let's just say *punching open palm with fist* I handled that situation. "What did you do?" Paid him for a year of crossing in advance.

Keep going for the video (night view starts at 1:45, but it's worth seeing briefly during the day too), and search Youtube if you want to see more because apparently this has already existed for several years which I was unaware of when I started writing this article.

Thanks to Dev, who's convinced if you rocket-bike across the bridge fast enough it'll act like a Stargate.

    I wonder if it's the goal is slower cyclists or to see how many accidents they can cause.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I think we need someone to do a 100mph fly-through on a motorcycle or something. This video was such bullshit it was even boring at 2x speed.

    This is the most disappointed I've been since Trump was made president.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Jeez. Must be nice to live such a great life that this and Trump are the biggest disappointments you ever have to deal with. Oh well... DAE Le Drumpf amirite?

  • Not sure about riding a horse on this with the wormhole effect. If I were riding my mule through there when those lights came on, she would plant all four hooves and refuse to move until she figured out what the hell that was. That's much better than my sister's mustang, who would freak out, throw her off (potentially over the railing), and then run the entire length of that thing in like fifteen seconds.

    Why is there only 3 seconds of the actual wormhole effect and it's in like slow motion?

  • Draco Basileus

    Did Iowa legalize weed and forget to tell the rest of the country? Why does something like this exist there?

  • FearlessFarris

    You should try traveling. There are neat, trippy, artistic, and awesome things like this all over the country.

  • Draco Basileus

    Personally, Iowa isn't, and probably never will be, on my travel bucket list.

  • ben

    the actual fuck...... that needed a speed run through to get a cool effect, instead we got a long boring view from high up then a twitchy half fly through

  • Jenness

    Right? That was the most disappointing video. That and all my wedding videos that should have never been. Man I have made some mistakes.

  • TheQiwiMan wanna make a few more...??

  • TheQiwiMan

    Don't pay the trolls, GW. You should know better than that.
