Bridge relays (or "bridges" for short) are Tor relays that aren't listed
in the main Tor directory. Since there is no complete public list of
them, even if your ISP is filtering connections to all the known Tor
relays, they probably won't be able to block all the bridges. If you
suspect your access to the Tor network is being blocked, you may want to
use the bridge feature of Tor.

If you use Vidalia the screenshots on the mentioned page will help you
determine if you use bridges, but in general: If you didn't explicitly
choose to use a bridge you connect to Tor directly.
