Review

This handy guide to the many bikepaths of Toronto is divided into four
main geographic areas: along Lake Ontario, central, west, and east.
Under each heading the bike trails are knowledgeably described;
information provided includes access to starting points by public
transportation, length of each path in both miles and kilometres, and
precise directions to and descriptions of each trail. Each description
is accompanied by a large-scale, clearly laid-out map to help orient the
user.

The text and descriptions are eminently straightforward and easily
comprehended, and the guideā€™s organization is compelling in its
simplicity. This revised edition belongs in the wheelpack of every avid
cyclist living in the greater Toronto Area.
