Hi dad,

Hope Florida, and the move is good!

Just wanted to let you know that I was able to get to Drive Test and replace my Quebec license for a full Ontario license.

The closest one was in Etobicoke, and it was going to take an hour and a half to take the TTC, so I decided to take advantage of the beautiful may day and bike it.

I started out making my way toward the Martin Goodman trail, doing our usual Humber route backwards. Instead of continuing north however, I veered West to Royal York, and made my way through a series of beautiful bike paths within ravines travelling northwest toward Eglinton and the 427.

The route was awesome, and if you’re in the need for changing up your west-east Humber-downtown loop, I’d highly recommend these ravines. I’ve attached a map of my route, and you’ll see some of the West-end parks I travelled through.

One notable park was Centennial, where they have a winter time ski slope — I climbed the slope with my bike and took in the “beautiful views” — clusters of high rises in all directions — to the east Toronto, and to the west the Marilyn towers marking Missisauga.

I then followed a river north and found myself on the border of Toronto and Missisauga in a rather desolate suburban thoroughfare — it turned out to be Eglinton West.

Anyways, just wanted to share with you this great ride I had!

Happy cycling in Fiddler’s!
