The Humber River Trail with Jane’s Walk


We had the most absolutely perfect weather for a ride down Toronto’s Humber River Bike Trail as part of the Jane Jacobs Walk, an annual urban-exploration festival. The day started at Union Station with a subway and bus ride up to the head of the trail at the North West corner of the city limits and then the bike back down along the trail to where we started – a 6 hour tour in all! It was truly one of the greatest adventures that I’ve had in my city thanks to my Guides, Zahra and Eric. Thanks, guys!
