What you'll do
After picking up our bikes, depending on the weather/day/riding experience/groupsize/group preference, we will take one of the 5 route options. I will navigate you through the bustling streets, the quite neighborhoods and the secluded paradise which is home to a plethora of flora and fauna. We will bike through the southern & western bits of Toronto, flanked by the Humber river in the west and the lake on the south. Toronto is littered with parks, streams, orchards and ponds, which make for a perfect escape within a bustling city. It is a part most tourists never get to see and is much enjoyed by a select few locals. We will stop at places of interest for pictures and coffee. The skyline will be in full few as we bike along the lake. We will ride and end our trip at Trinity Bellwoods Park. Most of the ride is easy and downhill. Route Options: 1) Humber river trail* - 25+ kms 2) Humber bay/Highpark - 25+ kms (preferred) 3) Toronto island* - 15+kms (only weekends & in August) 4) Toronto Core - 15+kms (only afternoons) 5) (1)+(2)*- 35+ kms (4+ hours) * = Extra $10 for transportation/ferry Please indicate your choice while booking. Extra dates, group sizes and timings may be made available upon request.
I became an avid cyclist out of the thirst to explore this incredibly diverse and expansive city, that never stops surprising. I have a passion to share the hidden treasures that the city has to offer and have the privilege to meet people from all over the world. I believe that the authentic way to explore a city is to immerse yourself in the daily lives of its residents, by taking the paths that they walk, by exploring the activities that they pursue, and by hustling through the bustling veins where something amazing is just around the corner. I am looking to share a slice of Toronto that you cannot find anywhere else, and something that you can take with you by being guided by an experienced and passionate guide, adventurist and humble cyclist.

Where you'll be
We will get to see the architecture of the earlier British settlers along the Humber River Trail especially at the Old Mill. The Humber River Trail is especially hospitable to deer, rabbits, and a variety of birds. Riding along the lakeshore allows you to get a glimpse of Toronto's skyline. We will end all the routes at Trinity Bellwoods park at the heart of the Queen West area.
