A test of Google Maps “My Maps” application

Today, as a test I made this map in Google Maps using their “My Maps” feature.

This is a route from Queen’s Quay and Lower Sherbourne to the “Darcy Allen Sheppard Memorial Bikeway” (my invention, from Huntley west on Bloor to Avenue Road). A bicycle icon marks the spot where messengers, and many more set up a Memorial to Darcy in the days after his death – on August 31, last year.

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

The Bicycle Route Mapping Wiki Project

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.
