    Cool map, but I dont think it’s the best route. I would go Hamilton, Bennett, Blackmarsh, Cashin, Campbell/Mundy Pond, Ropewalk. Hamilton Ave is a bit of a hill, but it’s not steep and it would save a LOT of time. This map is the “scenic route”.

    Nice map…and I agree, steep hills can be brutal for biking (or running). However, I support anyone who is active (but not obesessed)…especially active and outdoors. If walking up hills with your bike means you are a “weiner”, be a “weiner” (I think you are a “winner” personally) At least you are an “active weiner”. My hat is off to anyone who gets out there and just does it. Bike til you come to a hill, bike up the hill as much as you can or feel like biking, then get off your bike and walk the rest of the way up the hill. As you bike more and bike more hills you will eventually build up your leg strength and fitness you may be able to bike all the way up more hills, but if not, keep on biking anyway…and keep walking when you need to (or if you may be able to get a lighter weight bike with a better gear ratio…although this is not necessary to spend a lot of money…I have a 100.00 bike from Cdn Tire). The same for runners…run till you need a break, then walk a bit, then if and when you can, run some more. If not, keep walking. At least you are out there…being active and doing your best. Hats off to you all the way!!!!

    I agree totally. It’s always okay to get off your bike and walk it.

    There are lots of hills in the downtown area, but while they may make for a tough climb going up, they’re lots of fun on the way down. It’s one of the joys of cycling here.

    Last night I went for a ride and there were an incredible number of bikes out — normal folks pedalling around in the nice weather. Lots were fumbling on the hills and wobbling into the lane, obvious new riders. Great to see, but I can imagine they’re pretty frustrating to car drivers.

    Drivers! Please take it easy on them until all these riders get used to the road. They’re just trying to get somewhere too.
