Come join me on one of my 4-hour bicycle tours of the Central Waterfront and Toronto Islands; two of Toronto’s beloved public spaces.

We’ll begin by exploring the 3.5 km of shoreline ride with stops at the Music Garden and Harbourfront Centre’s Power Plant Art Gallery.

Then with a very enjoyable and quick ferry ride to get to the Toronto Islands, we can experience some 15 km of fresh air and open space on a flat trail system. This favourite bicycle route is a joy to ride and a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning.

We’ll ride around the car-free neighbourhoods of Algonquin and Ward’s Islands and visit historic landmarks such as the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse and the 1884 Anglican Church, St. Andrew-by-the-Lake.

We’ll also enjoy the scenery, including the parks, the lake, the beaches, and the cottages. Along the way, you’ll hear stories about key people and events from the last 150 years of the Central Waterfront and Islands' remarkable history.

The tour is suitable for beginner to advanced riders, as we move at an easy pace and make plenty of stops to talk and take in the sights.

The price includes the use of a bicycle, helmet, water, ferry ticket, snacks and tour guide(s).

Children are welcome when accompanied by a parent/guardian. Reservations required.
