“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.”
