just walking in there should be the same as full 1 hour cardio exercise. In fact while it looks pretty (resembles a dragon), this is a very stupid idea: bad for someone with a disability, bad for the elderly, etc.

Shockingly not everything in this world needs to cater to those two groups nor does it mean that there isn't a pathway that isn't disability friendly to them.

I don't know about those aggressive slopes in the winter time. you'll be able to get from one end of the bridge to the next without using the pedal.

It's nice to see stuff like this every now and then.  Something like this would never get approved in the US since there's no cost-benefit.

Would this be safe during a quake when the bridge starts resonating and swaying? (Speaking of resonance, that reminded me of the funny incident when a group of people on top of a building caused it to shake violently for 10-15 minutes simply by dancing to the song I've Got the Power!)

Since they built a bizarre looking bridge, they should have painted it with odd colours to match its weirdness instead of making it generic red colour. :D

Why not ask them to hire you so you could paint it in Lime green...  then you fly back home...

 

They visit the bridge and go "WTF?"

 

 

heheheh.

I wonder if this design is more, or less, earthquake resistant.

Red, dark red, brown, stainless steel are not bad at all... But the odd colors is WTF.

I am sure it is.  They designed it at the office and they have bridge structures something like hydraulics for testing at their lab to make sure it is stable enough before start building a bridge. Which they used the earthquake resistant parts under the buildings.
