BikeWay: The Gerrard-Fairford-Woodfield ‘Alternative’

This map has a companion article over at the blog, that expands on the terms “Enabled” & “Alternative” bike route; routes in the old city, on the “graph paper grid”, that avoid dangerous  intersections and corridors – like this one that avoids the intersection of Coxwell Ave. and Lower Gerrard Street – and the super busy bazaar that is Gerrard Street between Coxwell and Greenwood Avenues: “Bikeway Route” around dangerous Coxwell and Lower Gerrard.

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.
