Bloor St is an important route for cyclists. It's generally flat, streetcar track-free, supported by a subway, and defined by its vibrant retail and commercial strips. Even though 90% of visitors are pedestrians, transit users, and cyclists, there is also a high number of car-bike collisions. It's time for that to change.
Danforth Ave is the east-end’s only route with the potential to provide a continuous connection from downtown across the Don Valley to Scarborough - all of the other bridges (Gerrard, Dundas and Queen) have streetcar tracks which make continuous routes challenging, if not impossible.
