Quite enjoyed it. Thought the bridge path itelf is very well designed and is a lot of fun to ride over. Plenty of run-off at both ends, with great sight lines and no blind corners.
Approach going via The Muzz and Queensport Rd was easy. Didn't realise how steep Queensport Rd was... Nice little warm-up for the bridge...
Northside connection is a bit messy. Paths/route are all there - its just that directional signage could be better.
So distance-wise, its a 20% distance shrinkage for me (from 24km using Story Bridge route, to 20km using Gateway). But time-wise it was actually the same (likely thanks to the 'rolling hills' of Creek Rd, Queensport Rd and the Gateway).

Anyway how do you get on it from the southside ? As you come up Queensport Rd, do you turn right onto Lytton Rd, shoot over the motorway, and is there a ramp taking you down to the bridge on your left? Or do you have to ride right around and under the bridges and double back?
On the northside I can see it is a bit messy, and it looks like you take a road bridge to get over the train line to get to the path that takes you to Nudgee Rd?
I hope to give it a run soon. I expect it will take me a bit longer than going via the city (from Coorparoo), but it might be nice for a change of scene.

It sounds confusing, but it will make sense when you see it.
Oh, and you have to cross Lytton Rd at the lights.
