Commute Like an Athlete During the Pan Am Games #TO2015

 

With over 250,000 fans and spectators in town, and over 7,500 athletes, Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) are bursting with events, tourists, and traffic! Ingle International is no stranger to the increase in congestion—located in downtown Toronto, we see the buzz of Pan Am excitement all around us!

While it’s a very exciting time for the city of Toronto and the province of Ontario, it can also be frustrating for those commuting or attending any number of events and competitions around the GTA. Now is a great time to make use of the upgraded bike paths and routes the City of Toronto has developed for cyclists during the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.

The Friends of the Pan Am Path have developed the Pan Am Path, over 80 kilometres of multi-use trails. These pathways cover a serious portion of the city: from Toronto’s west end, down the Humber River to the Waterfront, up the Don Valley, across the Gatineau Corridor, down the Highland Creek, and east out along the Scarborough Waterfront to the Rouge River. The Pan Am Path provides a safe place for bikers to commute, enjoy the outdoors, and get some exercise! See the route map here.

Don’t own a bike? Try Bike Share Toronto—a network of 800 bicycles and 80 stations located throughout downtown Toronto. Bike Share provides Toronto’s residents and visitors with an additional option for getting around town.

With bike paths, bike lanes, and designated bike parking throughout downtown Toronto, you can commute like an athlete to work, or to cheer on your team during the Pan Am Games!
