We're celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Bloor Viaduct by bridging our city east to west with books and bicycles.

Bathurst & Bloor at 11 am

The history of Bathurst & Bloor stretches back to the 1790s, when the original boundaries of York Township were first established. In this neighbourhood you'll find A Different Booklist bookstore & event space offering book lovers literary gems from “the south to the north, from Africa to the Caribbean, from Asia to South America.” We will start our journey here.

Prince Edward Viaduct Park at 1 pm

The Viaduct bicycle lane is a vital part of Toronto's cycling infrastructure. The inadequacies and safety hazards of the bike lanes on and around the Bloor Viaduct have persisted for years. We intend to bridge the gap with books and bicycles.

East Lynn Park on Danforth at 3 pm

Come discover East Lynn Park located on the south side of the Danforth between Coxwell and Woodbine. After the Book Ride stroll along a section of the Danforth, grab an ice cream cone, a cappuccino or dinner.

The Route

We are planning on cycling 8 kilometres!
