Що ви робитимете

***NOTE: SOCIAL DISTANCING IS EASIER ON A BICYCLE.***
We wipe down all equipment before and after our trips, and provide you with a clean mask if you need one.

It's cooler by the lake! This is Toronto's most unique bicycle tour experience: we travel west along the Waterfront Trail, stopping at key locations [e.g. Ireland Park, Coronation Park, Sunnyside pool and High Park] which serve as important markers of Toronto's history as a city. No standard tours make stops at these places, so it will be a unique experience, whether for Torontonians or for tourists.
I'll take you on a relaxing and refreshing trip west along the lake, stopping at little known historical sites in the city. Cycling around the city is a very healthy and original way of getting to know local sights. You'll learn about Toronto's history through an interactive experience, including multimedia materials and trivia. Among other landmarks, you will learn about:
- Indigenous history, including how Toronto got its name;
- Toronto's waterfront and railway legacy;
- The Island Airport;
- The War of 1812;
- Sunnyside Amusement Park;
- High Park;
- The Humber River

We will end up right where we started, so it'll be easy to carry on the rest of your journey in Toronto.
Other things to note:
It will be easy riding on flat terrain. You will see a lot of outstanding vistas.

I am an award-winning retired History teacher who also taught French, Spanish and German. I love telling people about events from the past which affect us today, often without us even realizing it. I have led several historical bike tours for members of Toronto Bike Meetup in the past 3 years, and got super positive feedback for them. That inspired me to share my experience and insights on a much larger scale. I lead unique and unconventional bicycle tours to the more interesting and lesser known historical sites in the city and incorporate national and local history in my narrative. I call it History in Motion.

I believe that the Waterfront Trail going west from Downtown is one of the most under-appreciated aspects of the city. Most tours overlook the beautiful scenery and calming nature of the water. I would love to show you these vistas. One of the most interesting aspects in Toronto's history has been its waterfront development and I will show you why this is the case. If you love nature & cycling, we will head to the west end to visit High Park.

Amazing way to see way more of the city than I would have on my Own, and I definitely love the city 10x more after this tour than I did before, and I’d really liked it before, too! Would absolutely recommend to anyone- Sean can cater to any fitness level, and was really fun to talk to for 3 hours!

Nothing but good words for Sean and his tour along the waterfront! He is very knowledgeable and the path he takes you on is scenic and overall the perfect activity to do on a sunny day. It really completed my trip to Toronto and I would definitely recommend Sean as your guide on the bike if you have about three hours to spare. Thanks a lot again, Sean!

Highly recommend this activity. Sean was very friendly and personable, and extremely knowledgeable about the city. I liked that he was able to tailor the tour to match participant interests. The ride itself is very scenic and Sean provides interesting insights into the city’s past.

I had a great time during my bike ride with Sean. He was easy going and flexible, happy to fine tune experience based on the participants interests and motivations. The bikes were in great condition ( the carriage basket was super handy too) and Sean even had a pick me up snack for us. Lots of great trivia, some hidden gems en route and of course a great harbour front. All make for a very enjoyable experience! I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to explore Toronto in a different way!

The waterfront bike experience was wonderful! Sean is an outstanding guide as well! He knows a lot of the city. He also added some history and facts of Canada and Toronto during the tour, and I love it! Besides, the timing of the bike tour is perfect, not too long, so you still got the energy to visit/ explore other places after lunch.
