Bicycle Tour Puzzle improved.

Staff at the BLD had a little laugh at Tino's expense today. Tino posted an antique bicycle map
that encouraged cyclists to visit each town on the map as they rode. It seems that Tino missed the modern version of the puzzle that sends cyclists all over the place just to get from point A to point B. The map is readily available in most bike shops across Toronto. As I write this I can even spy one on Tino's desk right next to his 'Das Birkenstock' fanzine.

Did you know to get from Woodbine Station to Main Station via a bikeway you need to use bikeways 16 to 57 to 18 to 59. By car the distance between the two is 0.9kms and if you follow the bikeways it is 3.5kms.

See how things have improved over the last 100 years.

Oh, man. You wear Birkies with socks just once, and you never hear the end of it.
