Take a ride and explore a lush downtown area that few locals and even fewer visitors have experienced by bike: the Don Valley.
We’ll take a quiet route through the grounds of Canada’s largest university and through Yorkville (one of Canada’s toniest neighborhoods) to reach the Valley – a large greenspace in the middle of the city that is larger than Central Park. We’ll stop at the Evergreen Brick Works where we will tour the gardens, get a spectacular view of the Toronto skyline from a hilltop perch, and enjoy a sweet treat/beverage at the local café.
We’ll also ride through the neighbourhoods that sit along the Valley’s edge: Rosedale, with its grand homes and quiet tree covered streets, and Cabbagetown – the largest collection of Victorian era houses in North America.
The riding is easy – almost car free on park paths, side streets and separated bike lanes, with beautiful scenery and lots of entertaining stops and stories. You’ll get a glimpse into life in and around the valley – and you’ll get a sense for why they call Toronto “a city in a park”. You’ll also get to experience the Valley in a way that many locals don’t get to – by bike!
This tour is available in the morning and in the early evening.
