3 Bike Rides That Will Make You Love Toronto

It’s hard to beat summer in Toronto. There’s so much to do and so many places to explore, the city comes to life in the summer. We can’t think of a better way to get around the city when the weather is just right than by bike. A good bike ride can make you fall back in love with the city again. We’ve picked out three of our favourite routes to take around some of our communities.

Grab your bike and hit the trails with us!

1. The Martin Goodman Trail at Bathurst to the Humber Bay Bridge

One of the most beautiful bike rides that you can take in Toronto is along the waterfront. Hop on the Martin Goodman Trail at Bathurst (near our 150 Dan Leckie Way and Library District developments!) and cruise west. You’ll pass by our Tip Top Lofts and through a few parks. Keep going until you reach the iconic Humber Bay Bridge. This beautiful arch bridge also has some great views of the Toronto skyline so be sure to take a peek.

2. The Martin Goodman Trail at Bathurst to Cherry Beach

Starting at the same point as our first ride, this one goes in the other direction. Head east along the waterfront for some different views of the city. Head over to Cherry Street and over the bridge so you can enjoy the skyline of the city from a different vantage point. Loop on over to Cherry Beach – it’s a great place to spend a summer afternoon before biking on home.

3. The Martin Goodman Trail at Jarvis to Riverdale Park

If you’re near our Market Wharf development in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, you’re not far from the bike path along the waterfront. Just head down Jarvis to the Martin Goodman Trail! Head east and then follow the trail north that goes along the DVP and the Don River. It’s a beautiful ride and it’ll take you right on up to Riverdale Park. It’s a bit more challenging than our first two rides, but it’s worth it for the views along the way.

Spring has kinda arrived in the city, which means warmer weather and none of that sad grey ice/slush mix on the sides of the road. It also means more bikes in the city. Not only is biking great for your health and overall fitness, it can be a lot easier on your wallet – and sanity – than owning a car or having to be at the mercy of the TTC every morning. Have we mentioned that bikes are very condo friendly? We’re here to give some tips for those who are thinking about trading in their morning traffic for that 2-wheel life.
