New to toronto, mechanic and frame builder

Hello,

My name is Peter I'm new to Toronto I just moved here a few weeks ago from out west.

I have been a mechanic for 10 years out west and started building frames 2 years ago under Redford cycles

trying to find some great spots to ride in the city, for road, cross, and hopefully some cross country and try and get busy with building frames and racks again.

if anyone knows of some great spots or group rides would be great to get out.

Peter

Hey Peter - Torontonian here. There are some decent parks to check out - Sunnybrook Park and Humber park are a nice scenic ride (especially Humber park). My favorite road ride is along the Lakeshore. You can take the waterfront trail from Toronto along the lake going west (LOTS of cyclists zoom along here) - then you can transition to Lakeshore BLVD and take that right out to Hamilton ( or stop and turn around in Oakville or Port Credit for a lunch run). It's about 75 out to Hamilton so 150km turnaround (or you can take the Go Train back as it runs all along the Lakeshore), or choose your turn around point anywhere along the way. It's really quite a lovely ride, very flat - with some very nice tree lined streets along the way. I'm busy as Fk the next week and a half but if you'd like to drop me a PM maybe we could arrange a ride out there - Oakville / Port Credit / Hamilton, your choice . Cheers!

Sean.
