‘Video Bicycle Ride’ – Wednesday 07 March 2012
Video URL: http://youtu.be/M0wPgDVLk2s
A bicycle ride from Jones Av along the Dundas Bike Lanes to Kingston Rd where they end – and then onto Dixon Av Wrong-Way-One-Way for one block; then down Brookmount Rd to an ally just north of Queen which gets one over to Elmer Av; then along Queen St East for one block to Kenilworth Av.
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.

Dawn a Biking Toronto member asked me to make a map that would avoid King St. through the core (see her map), because it is really dangerous most times of the day – especially at the rush hours when she commutes to work.
This is my solution, it adds 1.6 km to the commute but as soon as your at the bottom of Sherbourne St. you can smell the lake and feel the waves; the air is clean and it’s a good way to start your day – very relaxing. It’s a good way to end your day as well – you can stop for a coffee at Tim Horton’s at 207 Queen’s Quay West at the foot of York St., sit at the Ferry Docks and watch yur ship come in ;). It’s beautiful down there. :)
