  • Thanks for your comment, Gary. Our slideshow refers explicitly to the new section of Martin Goodman Trail that runs along Queens Quay from Bay Street to Stadium Road, where there is enough pedestrian space on the promenade that walkers can be encouraged not to walk on the trail. West of Stadium, cyclists should follow multi-use trail etiquette as outlined in the city’s guidelines here: http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=8d3f0995bbbc1410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD. Any concerns you have about that section of the trail can also be directed at Toronto 3-1-1.

  • Martin Goodman Trail (west of Stadium Rd to HMCS york] is used by many pedestrians. A full range from tourists to neighbours with children and older often handicaped neighbours use this path. Many cyclists believe it is a full on fitness trail and peds should not be on it. I use that trail to get to my vehicle on Remembrance Dr while on crutches and have been bumped and yelled at "get off the trail" by cyclists speeding by. There will be older and younger people in collision with fitness cyclists unless you sign it"keep to right" and 'slow down" in the narrow curved portion beside Tip Top Tailors building and 90 Stadium Rd. This narrow portion is too often overcrowded for speeding cycles. Let`s be safe and have fun. In your slide show which covers the area east of here you say "Don`t walk on Martin Goodman Trail". Cyclists take this as carte blanche and can be dangerous to other users in this area. . thank you.

  • I have ridden through there a few times now. My experience is that ringing the bicycle bell at pedestrians only gets them angry. It works much better to ring the bell and say a few cheery words of encouragement to move. I don't think they realize how dangerous it is when some bikes are zipping through that lane at top speed.
