Bicycling is a unique and exciting way to view Toronto’s early history. On June 14 from 11 AM to 1PM, Fort York and Heritage York’s Lambton House will conduct a Bike Month event. Lambton House, 4066 Old Dundas St. is a good starting point for the tour. It is at the edge of the Carrying Place trail. From there, we will ride to Teiagon, the site of the 17th Century Seneca Village and the Magasin Royal of 1720. Following the Humber Bicycle Trails, we will stop and explore the sights of Toronto’s first two forts. Continuing along the Martin Goodman Trail we will go to the site of Fort Rouille, the last French Fort.

Fort York is the site of the founding of British York which replaced the French era of Toronto. Participants get free admission to the site.

Lambton House will be open at 10:00 AM before the tour begins. Participants can visit the site for free.

The ride is of moderate difficulty.

The tour is free

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
