Wat je gaat doen

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

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.

Waar je naartoe gaat

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.

Sean was an amazing host and his bikes were top. He braved the cold to take us around the city on a Sunday afternoon. He has a deep understanding of culture and the places that we went biking. Please don’t miss this tour with an extremely knowledgeable and helpful person, highly recommended. Good luck, Sean.

Sean habla un excelente español que nos permitio vivir una gran experiencia por lugares de postal. Fuimos los unicos y nos permitio crear un tour mas a nuestro gusto. Nos sorprendio con ese picnic con esa increible vista y lugar. Siempre que visito ciudades nuevas los tour en bici son una de las mejores maneras de conocer a fondo los lugares y detectar a donde quiero regresar despues. Este sin duda ha sido uno de los mejores tour en bici.
