Did you know the city is criss-crossed by a network of   Bike map
bike routes including off road bike paths?  Grab the latest Toronto Cycling Map, also at the library, which shows on and off the street bikeways, suggested routes and connections, bicycle locker, rental and shop locations, and other important information about cycling.  

Offroadpath small You can also try Ride the City, an online route planner, available as an Android app so you can double check your directions while you are out on your bike. It gives you the option of the most direct route, or a "safer" route, usually down quieter street.
