Itinerary:

IF YOU HAVE NOT RIDDEN WITH ME BEFORE, you MUST answer in the affirmative the questions below.

The weather looks OK for Sunday, so why don't we go for a ride?

We will start at Old Mill subway, go northwest to Centennial Park, go north around Pearson Airport, and then take Humber River trail back south. Most of this ride is on bike paths, there will be about 7 to 8 kms on some low traffic roads. Bring a lunch, we will stop to eat at one of the parks along the way.

Also if you have not ridden with me before, you ABSOLUTELY MUST answer in the affirmative the following questions in the notes sections of the sign up page (for your own ease simply copy and paste the questions into the Notes section and type in your answers when you sign up):
1. Do you agree to wear a bicycle helmet?
2. Are you comfortable and safe riding in light-to-medium traffic, i.e. with automobiles?
3. Are you able to bring a spare tube for your bicycle?
4. Does your bicycle fit you properly?
5. Is your bicycle in decent shape ie no rusty chain etc, working brakes? 6. Can you maintain 18km/h speed for 3 hours?

There is free parking near the subway for those that are driving to the event.

The TTC subway does not start running until 0900 on Sundays so you may need to plan an alternate mode of transportation to get to the listed event carpool location on time. Check out the new TTC Trip Planner to figure out the best way to meet up on time with your coordinator. You can specify the time at which you need to ARRIVE at your destination, and it is recommended that you put in a time at least 15 minutes before the scheduled TOC event departure time. Please note that the tool is a beta version and the TTC are still working out the bugs. If a route looks a bit funny, confirm your directions with TTC Customer Service.
