    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.
