Cycling in and around Toronto is a fun and fast way to visit unique neighbourhoods, attractions and enjoy nature in the city. Visitors to Toronto will be pleasantly surprised by its large bikeway network with 563km mix of bicycle lanes, off-road trails and signed routes, the relatively flat and grid like layout of the city makes getting around by bike easy.
For those who want to stay off the city streets, days can be spent riding trails through parkland and forested ravines, following heritage watershed rivers and discovering the waterfront on the Martin Goodman/Waterfront Trail that covers 56km as it crosses the city from east to west.
Toronto is easy to access by bike either by cycling in and out using the Waterfront Trail or by multiple rail and bus providers that offer a variety of bike transportation services. Making cycling even more accessible to visitors is Toronto Bikeshare, the city’s public bike sharing system. Bike rentals are also available at a number of bike shops, and with close to 100 independent bike retailers in the city there are plenty of shopping opportunities.
Note: The Ontario By Bike Network only certifies bicycle friendly accommodations in Toronto, although there are many other places to eat and visit in neighbourhoods across the city.
