Officially opened[masked], North Scarborough Green Loop is Toronto's newest bicycle route. The loop is 12 kilometres long, and is suitable for all types of bicycles and riding abilities. There are no big hills, and with the exception of a few stretches through residential streets in bicycle lanes, the whole loop takes place on paved off-road paths. The loop connects 3 city wards, over 20 schools, major shopping centres, community centres, and parks.
This will be a relaxed ride with an average speed probably not exceeding 15 kilometres per hour. Everyone is responsible for supplying their own bicycles, helmets, sunscreen, food, refillable water bottles, et cetera. There are bathrooms and a drinking fountain inside the community centre at the starting location, plus more along the route. There will also be places to stop along the way for stories, photography, food, and other necessities.
We'll meet outside the front doors of the community centre at 13:00 (1:00 PM), and then begin our ride at 13:30 (1:30 PM). This should give everyone plenty of time to do mechanical checks and use the facilities. Depending on a number of factors, the ride will probably finish around 14:30 to 15:00 (2:30 PM to 3:00 PM).
As noted by Cass, this event happens to coincide with North Scarborough's 2014 Ribfest. Looking at the website, I see that a lot more than just ribs will be offered:
