You’ll spend the day in a small group in the care of a guide who will entertain and inform you with stories of our city. Learn about city builders and some of the families who helped to put Toronto on the map. Get familiar with our recent triumphs and current challenges. Examine the city from a number of angles, such as architecture, transportation, urban development, politics, art, music, and the environment. Compare and contrast living in the different areas and neighbourhoods you’ll see. Together, we’ll cover lots of ground geographically and historically!
As with our other tours we take care of everything you’ll need for the ride – outfitting you with a bike and helmet, and providing you with water, snacks and a picnic lunch. Suitable for beginner through to advanced riders of at least moderate fitness, we move at an easy pace and make plenty of stops to talk and take in the sights.
