A loop that combines the Lower Don Trail and Martin Goodman Trail on the east side of downtown Toronto. The route is mostly flat and on dedicated bike paths off the street. There is a small portion on Unwin Ave where you'll be on the road, but it's not too busy.
We suggest starting at the shop, but you could also start at Cherry Beach or near the Starbucks located at the corner of Lakeshore Blvd E. and Leslie St. Check the route map for additional information about what's along the route.

We had a smaller group for last week's Sunday Night Skate in Toronto mostly due to the rain that was coming down just before our meet up time of 6:30pm. Lucky for the ones that did show up, the rain did stop and surfaces dried up quickly. Being a smaller group, we were able to move quick and spontaneously through the city. Erik Burrow, our store manager at the Toronto shop, led us on an unforgettable inline urban exploration adventure. Here's a brief overview of some of the areas we passed through. You can find the complete route at the bottom of this post. However to fully experience the fun you can have with a group of good people sauntering through the city on inline skates, you have to join us on Sunday. Every Sunday (rain or shine) at 6:30pm we meet at our new Toronto storefront location in the amazing Canary District. The address is 446 Front Street East, we're on the corner of Front Street East and Rolling Mills Road.
Another solid turn out for our Sunday Night Skate in Toronto's Canary District. This wonderful new area will be our new home for the Toronto shop. Every Sunday we meet at 6:30pm in front of 446 Front Street East (the corner of Rolling Mills Road and Front Street East). This is a social skate for everyone of all abilities and disciplines. At the bottom of this post you will find a map of the route we took, try skating it and let us know what you think. We want share great places for inline skating in Toronto so that you can enjoy rollerblading more. Here's a recap of last weeks skate.
Last Sunday we celebrated Canada's 150th birthday with a skate along Toronto's Lake Ontario waterfront. Our skate started off at what will be our new store location in the Canary District, and continued west along the Martin Goodman Trail. Lots of people were out and about, the city was alive with good vibes.
