For Sunday, January 27, meet at 10 AM at the Food Court at the Hudson's Bay Centre, 2 Bloor St. East. The Hudson's Bay Centre is located on the north-east corner of Yonge and Bloor, at the Bloor-Yonge subway station. The Food Court is on the lower level, on the east side of the building, near Park Rd. On Bloor St, there is an entrance which says "Matisse", just west of the Marriot entrance, which leads to the Food Court (to the right).
At the start there is a Tim Hortons, which opens at 10 AM, and there are washrooms. We will walk to the Distillery District (4 Km) where we can stop for a coffee. We will then walk to Walmart Gerrard Square (7 Km) for a bathroom break, and continue on to The Danforth (10 Km), where the walk will end near Chester subway station. We can stop near the end at Kalyvia or another restaurant on The Danforth for lunch.
We should never be more than about 1 Km from a subway or bus/streetcar route at any time, if you would like to leave early. We will be on city streets or paved paths at all times so shoes or boots suitable for the weather conditions would be appropriate.
The planned route is available on Ride With GPS at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29224257
There are currently no scheduled subway closures for this weekend, but please check https://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/index.jsp for any changes.
Non-members are welcome. This is an official TBN event, so they will be asked to sign the waiver form, but, like all winter walks, will not be charged the non-member fee.
If you have trouble finding us at the start, please call me on my cell at 416-917-8866. If I don't answer, try again, as I may miss the first call.
