Queen’s Quay to the bottom of Beverley at Queen

This route starts at where the Martin Goodman Trail connects with Queen’s Quay West. It’s a challenge to find a good route north into the core from Queen’s Quay West, Bathurst, Spadina, York, Bay and Yonge are all awful car routes full of cabs and noxious carbon monoxide – this is my favorite alternative. It’s a beautiful ride around to the Steam Whistle Roundhouse Brewery, up and around Rogers Centre (Sky Dome) to Peter Street, then a zig-zag at Queen onto Soho and through the ally to Beverley just north of Queen.

Beautiful Quiet Route - that avoids the ugly, dangerous car routes north from Queen's Quay (Bathurst, Spadina, York, Bay & Yonge)

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.
