you can ride along the water front all the way from etobicoke (toronto west end) to scarborough / pickeing (toronto east end), that's a very nice ride with a great view.
you can go further, all the way past etobicoke to mississauga, but the view over there is not as nice.
on the other hand, if you want to go north / south direction, biking via the Don river, bike paths is very nice it goes all the way up to around Eglinton in north york, after that... well you can take any route and keep going north, via warden / kennedy you can go all the way up to the north lakes, if you are really not afraid of the crazy cars zooming by so close to you on those open areas.
that's the only problem, once you exit the city areas, people on cars will just fly by and it gets quite dangerous for us the bikers.
I've heard so many horror stories, of friends of friends being killed like that.
