Greenwood and Dundas St. East to King St. West and Spadina via Queen’s Quay

The Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki Project
Dawn a Biking Toronto member asked me to make a map that would avoid King St. through the core (see her map), because it is really dangerous most times of the day – especially at the rush hours when she commutes to work.

This is my solution, it adds 1.6 km to the commute but as soon as your at the bottom of Sherbourne St. you can smell the lake and feel the waves; the air is clean and it’s a good way to start your day – very relaxing. It’s a good way to end your day as well – you can stop for a coffee at Tim Horton’s at 207 Queen’s Quay West at the foot of York St., sit at the Ferry Docks and watch yur ship come in ;). It’s beautiful down there. :)

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.
