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.

This route minimises the length of time spent on Bathhurst where there appear to be a higher than usual percentage of drivers who believe that cyclists belong on the sidewalk !

Hallam and Dufferin to Bloor St East and Sherbourne.

This is another east/west route that avoids Bloor St. West and the core and comes to Bloor St East at Sherbourne. I started this map at Hallam St. because everyone should know about the Hallam St Bike lanes. Hallam connects with Harbourd bike lane with a suicide zig zag down to Harbourd on Ossington. That turn at Ossington is dangerous and usually very busy with car traffic is a ‘get to’ for cars into the core. Not for bikes. So I suggest north at Shaw (which is a one way south) up to Dupont which also has a bike lane take that to Yonge and through Rosedale to Sherbourne.

Hallam (Bike Lane) up Shaw (one way south) to Dupont (Bike Lane) and Dufferin to Bloor St East (Bike Lane) and Sherbourne (Bike Lane).

Sherbourne and Queen’s Quay to Eglington and Mt. Pleasant

A way up the east side of the core. Notice the big problem just above bloor to just below St Clair, that's Mt Pleasant which is a hyway and a kill zone for bikes.
