ماذا ستفعل

***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.

أين ستكون

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 a été un guide formidable. Très prévenant et à l’écoute des clients pour adapter le tour en fonction, ses explications tout au long du tour étaient toujours très intéressantes et captivantes. Je le recommande fortement :)

This was one of the highlights on my trip to Toronto! Sean was very personable and knowledgeable. I wanted a tour with a good mixture of history and nature and Sean tailored the experience accordingly. The pace of the tour was just right, and the views of of waterfront were captivating. Sean was more than willing to answer all of my questions and provide recommendations of places to see in Toronto.

This bike tour with Sean was definitely one of the highlight of my short trip to Toronto - I am so happy my friend and I booked it! Sean is an amazing/captivating/well-knowledged/friendly tour guide. Through the whole tour, we could feel his passion for Toronto and its history. The fact that the tour is by bike is also a big plus, since we were able to see a whole lot of the city in only 3 hours. Sean made sure we were confortable/felt safe on our bikes through the whole tour. In addition, my friend and I both speak French and Sean delivered the whole tour in that language, which we thought was such a nice and special attention. Thank you so much Sean for that fabulous tour, I will for sure recommend it to everyone I know who is going to visit Toronto!

Sean is a great guide but also a fun company. We loved the historical accounts, geographical tips, and real-life trivia that Sean provided throughout the ride. Learned many interesting facts that made the ride a thousand times more enjoyable. The ride itself was scenic, safe, and comfortable, with well-functioning hybrid bikes, and a path that was more than 95% flat. Sean knows the area well and tailors your ride to your expectations, requests, time available, and weather changes (as it occurred to us with a brief rain). Oversall, I highly recommend it. One of the best parts of our trip to Toronto.
