Cycling enthusiasts a new place to test their off-road skills in a few days with the opening of the new Sunnyside Bike Park.
The park — sandwiched between the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard — was designed for the city by Jay Hoots, a professional rider who has helped design and build 50 parks across North America. He’s considered the best in the business.
“This entire park offers opportunity for training — learning how to ride a bike in different situations,” Hoots told CBC News.
