Roncesvalles

The quaint streets of Roncesvalles make for a lovely bike ride through the city. Not only are there some cute sights, but there are also plenty of locally owned shops open. Roncesvalles boasts wide bike lanes, which makes getting through the popular borough a piece of cake.
 

 

Sunnyside

Head to Sunnyside to take in some views of the lakefront. The Martin Goodman Trail, which runs along Lake Ontario, is perfect for cyclists. Plus, Sunnyside has got tons of cycling facilities sprinkled throughout its scenic streets.
 

High Park

High Park is a beautiful spot for cyclists, especially for the family. While the bike ride isn’t very long, there are paved bike trails on the side of the roads through the park, and it’s a great route to get to the paths along the lake.
 

Don River Valley Trails

A bit of nature right in the middle of Toronto, this go-to cycling spot never gets old. The Don River Valley Trails run alongside the river, making for an enjoyable ride.
 

 

Toronto’s Waterfront Trail

Toronto’s Waterfront Trail is one of the most beautiful cycling spots in the city. With stunning views of the waterfront, this lengthy trail extends far past Toronto, all along Lake Ontario.
 

Tommy Thompson Park

Tommy Thompson Park, also known as The Leslie Spit, can draw quite a few pedestrians, but it’s still a stunning ride. Plus, the lighthouse at the end is a must-see.
 

Toronto Islands

It’s easy to forget how great the Islands are, but a bike ride around Centre Island is one of those things you should really try to do once it gets warm enough to make that ferry ride seem worthwhile.
 

Humber River Trail

The Humber River Trail is a scenic trail that runs through some rolling hills, and boasts some small waterfalls and beautiful bridges.
