About michael holloway

A long distance runner and a cyclist all my life, my 40th birthday, mid-life crisis saw me become a full time messenger in Toronto - 80 kilometres a day, winter and summer for 3 years. I was in the best shape of my life - both mentally and physically - but three accidents, the chaos and a war for space between bikes and other road users was turning me into a 21 Century road raging zealot. I had to quit. I had learned midtown and the core and of this city like the back of my hand - and that mental mapping changed me forever. I still cycle everywhere but my work is now the pursuit of my other life long ambition - to make myself into a writer.

  1. I’d suggest taking a side street N of Bloor to Old Mill Inn and take the path S along the Humber river. The path starts just past the Old Mill Inn (W side of Humber, just before the bridge). The path to the North starts at E side of bridge @ Etienne Brule park.

  2. Thanks MikeG,

    I’ve never cycled these roads, so I won’t add another map to this. Once your on that south bound path does it get you all the way down to the lake?

    I see there are what look like narrow paths all the way west from the mouth of the river to Humber Bay Park (which I just saw is quite a bit west of where this map ends). But my map does end on the path that might get you there – if those are paths I’m seeing on Google satellite images are indeed Bike Paths. :)

  3. The best route to get from Bloor to the Humber is to make a left at Prince Edward and head north to King Georges Road and then make a right. This will run into the Kingsway, which will end at an intersection with Old Mill just to the left. Take Old Mill and turn right before the bridge. This puts you on the Humber Trail. The trail goes south to meet the Goodman Trail at the lake.

    If you cross the bridge and make a left you can also take the trail along the river pretty far north, which is a nice ride. You do have to leave the path a few times, but only one requires riding on main roads.

    1. There is a short jaunt on a back street just south of Dundas. The bike path leads up to Lundy avenue where you will make a left followed by an immediate left and then an immediate right back onto the path.

    2. You will have to cross Eglinton, but there is a path on either side.

    3. If you want to head farther north than the 401, you will need to head up a steep hill at the end of the bike path and take Weston west until you hit Dee road and go left to rejoin the path.

    Have fun!
