This video clip was taken during my bike ride to the Scarborough Bluffs. I actually decided to ride eastwards because from 2 pm yesterday there was a huge 5-alarm fire raging very close to our place. A car wrecking company with dozens of car-casses went up in flames and a huge cloud of black smoke started covering the city and drifted northwestwards. According to the news it was a tire fire which released a plume of toxic fumes. Apparently, even this morning the fire was still smouldering and firefighters were still there. I wonder what the long-term health effects / contamination will be from this event...

So because of this fire I rode eastwards into the clean air, although I stopped at Danforth & Vic Park to see what was going on. All I could see was police vehicles cordoning off the area and no one could get close to the site of the fire.

I continued east on the Danforth to Midland and discovered several new forest trails near Fishleigh Drive. Then I cycled through a steep valley trail down to the lake from where I had a great view of the Scarborough Bluffs and Bluffers Park.

Between Rosetta McClain Gardens and the Toronto Hunt Club I checked out several quaint neighbourhoods located on top of the Bluffs and finally ended up at Toronto's Eastern Beaches and took in the sunset at Ashbridges Bay Park.

I am actually a travel writer who loves to explore international destinations as well as my chosen home town of Toronto.

Also, my travel e-books containing stories from my trips to destinations such as Sicily, Havana, Mexico City, New York City, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax and many others are available right now at http://www.travelandtransitions.com/e....
