We have another exciting season of City Walks planned for the cooler weather. From mid-October, almost every weekend, until the weather is nice enough to begin cycling, there will be a walk starting Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM (with one exception). They begin at or very near a subway station, go for about 10 Km, on city streets and ravines, with a coffee/washroom break around the middle, and often a snack or lunch stop near the end. The walks either return to the starting subway station or to another subway station. The level of difficulty is similar to a Leisure Wheeler or Urban Roller bike ride, and frequently longer or shorter routes will be available.
From mid-October to mid-December we offer pre-scheduled routes that will be posted on the Events page, with the start and end points defined and the route between them described. This year about half the walks will be ones that we have done in past years, and the other half will be new routes we have not done before.
As we did last year, beginning in January, we will run a series of less formal winter walks, similar to the fall walks, but with the start point and route not usually provided until the Tuesday or Wednesday before the walk. This allows us to be more flexible to accommodate changing weather conditions, and to visit different parts of the city, based on current events or other items of interest that people may be curious about.
Note that there will be TTC subway closures many weekends this fall, so information on the closure schedule is provided in the walk description.
These walks are free to all TBN members. Non-members will be charged the $5 non-member fee for the walks in the fall, but not for the informal winter walks. Non-members will be asked to sign the waiver form either case.
