Ride the City: Toronto
There was news recently that Ride the City has come out with a Toronto edition. The idea behind this mapping site is to provide you with cycling directions from and to any destination of your choice. Just put in your starting place and destination and the site will generate directions and note whether there are any official bike lanes along the route. The idea behind the site is to provide you with a safe cycling route. In order to help make the directions better for users you can rate the route it gives you. I'm not sure how the site prioritizes its directions, but I suspect it's some mixture of finding safe routes with bike lanes and efficiency.
