What is this?
This is an unofficial conversion of the offical City of Toronto 2012 cycling map. The city only provides PDF files, and I have converted them to static images.

- Downtown Toronto (P12 through T21)
- Weston Road and Highway 401 (G8)
- Midland Avenue and Highway 401 (F31)
- Humber Bay Park and Park Lawn Road (T9, T10)
- South Kingsway and The Queensway (S10, S11)
- Don Mills Road and Don Valley Parkway (N23)
- Lower Don/Waterfront Trail (T20, T21)
Why use this instead of the city's .pdf files?
The city's .pdf files are huge. Even on very fast computers, the .pdf files are very slow to load, and are very frustrating to pan and zoom. Some PDF readers won't even open the files. I did this so I could get easy, reliable access to the official maps from anywhere, including mobile devices.

Why not just use Google Maps?
The bicycling layer on Google Maps has gotten a lot better for Toronto lately. But the city map has much more detailed information including Bikeway route numbers, more distinctions between types of pathways/roads, and entry points on to trails.
How big are the files?
Each tile of the full city map is a PNG file and is about 500KB. The size of each tile varies slightly, approximately 3300x2500 each (or 8.2 megapixels). The insets are all around 150KB, except downtown which is 900KB.
I want a hard copy!
You can get copies in libraries (when they're not on strike), or the city will send you one for free (when they're not on strike). Email your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Bike Map" in the subject.
You suck at graphics / CSS / have no design sense!
Well, yeah. This was a pretty quick and dirty exercise. If you want to volunteer your talents, or if you can help fix something that's broken, please contact me.
