Good idea, but it would be FAR better if it hugged the waterfront the entire way… may spur on governments to improve the route through Scarborough (which is currently BRUTAL and long through many hills, many weird turns on residential streets and very poor signage)… OR perhaps… oh, I don’t know… a cross-town separated bikelane. Bloor-Danforth, anyone?
What if you could ride your bike from Brampton through downtown to Scarborough on one continuous path? A community-inspired iniative has proposed the creation of Pan Am Path, an outdoor route winding through Toronto’s corners to connect the city’s suburbs and diverse downtown neighbourhoods. The path is one of the proposed legacy projects seeking to provide effective transportation for the thousands of tourists and locals that will be flooding the city for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in 2015. Runners, cyclists and walkers will be able to enjoy the trail en route to Pan Am hot spots, passing through the urban sights and natural beauty found in the mixed environments of the GTA.
