Day 1: North York to the Beaches, Toronto - 47km

Starting in North York, this easily accessible ride quickly connects to Toronto's trail system and urban forest via the Humber Valley. Ride 20km south on this paved trail that winds it's way alongside the river that was originally used by First Nations as an important transportation route north to the Upper Great Lakes. Enjoy the shaded park trails and green spaces that continue as the route meets Lake Ontario and the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, heading east towards downtown. Take a ride about the city, stop at Harbourfront or continue on to Cherry Beach, before ending the day in the Beaches neighbourhood at the Days Inn. 

Day 2: The Beaches to North York, Toronto - 43km

Setting off from the Beaches, the ride quickly connects to the Don Valley trail for a northerly routing. Marvel at this once mighty river that helped carve the valley, and that like the Humber, helped define the city. Riding along this meandering trail, flanked by naturalized vegetation, it is easy to forget ones place in Canada's largest city. Stop under the span bridges, big and small, admire the public art imbedded in and alongside the trail and detour into Sunnybrook Park or the Toronto Botanical Garden for a floral tour. At the northern reaches of the city, connect on to the hydro corridor trail not far north of Finch Avenue for the last 13km of this looped ride.
