We're thinking of doing the same thing, but were thinking of using OSPF as our routing protocol. We currently use OSPF on our fiber ring, but we don't own the fiber and the local company (an ISP) wants to raise our rates significantly. So we thought we would run our own fiber between the buildings and use the wireless as a redundant backup, essentially creating a ring, one side fiber, the other side wireless. These two locations are separated by train tracks and both sit literally right next to the tracks. We're talking a distance of ~100yds. Do you think OSPF would route across the APs between the buildings?

I don't see any problems, it should be fine.
