Last week the final paving on the Stratford section of the new Hillsborough Bridge Active Transportation Path was completed, meaning you can now walk, roll, or cycle from end to end. I rode over and back last night for the first time, and shot some video on the ride back, showing the newly-completed section.

The ride is a noisy one: it’s a functional pathway, not a peaceful one. But the views are fantastic, the pathway smooth, removed from vehicle traffic, and well-designed, and the dramatic improved reach of safe active transportation infrastructure the path represents is immeasurable.

The ride over took me 7 minutes from Grafton & Water to the Esso corner.
