Great to hear, but I wonder if a simple Bikeshare Toronto expansion to the Beaches may not make more sense. The Toronto Islands too, come to think of it. Hop on a ferry and then when you get to the island, tons of bikes are waiting for you…
The city has issued a request for proposals to run a bike rental stand in Ashbridges Bay Park, similar to the one on the Toronto islands.
“The Beach is like Muskoka to a lot of people, because not everybody has a cottage,” said local councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon.
Unlike the city’s Bike Share program, which serves as part of the public transit network, these bikes will be for leisurely waterfront jaunts.
