Getting tours of Toronto is starting to become a pretty good business. It’s a beautiful city that has so much to offer, all packed into a tiny 5-kilometre radius. There have always been some interesting ways of doing some local sightseeing.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sean, the owner of Bikes and Bites Tours. For the last two years, he has been taking large groups of locals and tourists on fun and delicious bike tours. His knowledge of Toronto is widely accepted and it shows in his online reviews.
Bikes and Bites will meet you and your friends near Union Station. They will provide bikes and safety equipment for you and your friends. For the next 4 hours, you will be taken to see the most worthwhile landmarks, while stopping for some of the best food offered by our great city. One of the best parts about this tour is an awesome price tag of only $85.
What else is there to add? How do you top that? This is just one of Sean’s many incredible reviews. He strives to give you a professional experience. As someone who has spent a lot of time riding throughout the city, I can confirm that it is one of the best ways to see it all.
Safe Biking In Toronto
Toronto is getting more bike-friendly every day. A common concern for people who want to go biking on Toronto’s roads. Bikers on Toronto streets are becoming so common, that drivers have started to check for bikers more often. It is still required to take safety precautions, but it definitely feels safer than it did a few years ago.
The city has been working hard to create options for commuters. By having more bike lanes, we get fewer cars on the road. Not only does this give us cleaner air, but it pushes the city closer to being 100% bike-friendly.
One of Toronto’s initiatives has been to create accessibility of public transportation.
Toronto Bike Share
The bike-share program creates several drop zones for bicycles that can be rented or dropped off. With an inexpensive fee(about the same price of TTC fare), you can rent a bike for a single-use trip.
The more you think you’ll need to use these bikes, you can extend your fare for the day, three days, or just bite the bullet and get an annual pass.
While you’re setting up your account, you should know that Toronto Bike Share is moving to a different payment provider. Make sure you are setting up your new account using the correct payment method. During this migration, new accounts will most likely be forced to set up payment using the new payment method. If you have an existing account, be sure to change to the new method so your subscription remains active.
