“I had a few minutes this evening and put in the new route to work. I tweaked it a little from what I originally planned and it works pretty well. The only dicey parts of it are the 401 crossing. Making a left on to Wilson’s a pain and can take some time. Most folks up there ride the sidewalk and hardly anyone walks so I tried that this morning and it was much easier. From Finch on to the end is another part where though it isn’t legal and I can’t officially encourage it, I will say that everyone I’ve ever seen on that road is on the sidewalk. With a 70 (80?) km/hr speed limit and folks who go faster than that routinely I wouldn’t recommend the road to anyone. And there’s no good way around it either. *Other* than that it’s pretty safe. While the route I posted earlier today was prettier, this one’s definitely way less stressful.”

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.
