Tips of nice places to go biking in Toronto!

Biking at Trillium Park

First day of Summer! And to start the new season, I went biking today to the new park at Ontario Place here in Toronto, the Trillium Park and the William G. Davis Trail. It’s a stunning waterfront green space, with an amazing view of the city skyline. The park just opened recently, a couple days ago, with over 1,000 trees yet to grow. That means there’s not a lot of shade in the park. However, there’s a pavilion there (one of the highlights of the park, in my opinion) that offers a shelter from the sun.

Cherry Blossom at Trinity Bellwoods Park

If you live in Toronto and have a Facebook or Instagram account, you definitely know it’s cherry blossom season in the city. Lots of photos and selfies at High Park and Trinity Bellwoods to register this amazing spectacle from nature that – unfortunately – only lasts for a few days. So, since I haven’t been posting on my blog lately, I decided to go biking to Trinity Bellwoods to take some pictures. Although there are more trees at High Park, it’s usually very crowded over there. I went there last Sunday, and it was hard to even walk in the park.

Biking at Taylor Creek Park

This year I didn’t bike so much as I wanted, specially during my favorite season of the year, the Fall. I might be wrong, but I remember that the fall foliage last year was more beautiful and lasted longer than this one. The weather is acting crazy too, we are having double digits temperatures in November, and I’m not sure if I should be happy for that or scared. Anyways, I went biking yesterday to Taylor Creek Park, taking the Don River Trail. Part of the trail, between Riverdale Park and Pottery Rd., is under construction, so during the week you need to take a detour via Broadview Ave. I did that once, and it’s a long detour, so I was actually avoiding taking that trail. However, on the weekends, when the construction site is closed, there’s a hidden path just after Riverdale Bridge that you can take and the continue biking until Pottery Rd.

Fall Bike Ride at Moore Park Ravine

I haven’t gone biking so much lately, so last weekend I decided to go for a ride to see a little more of the fall foliage. Since I also wanted to stop by Evergreen Brick Works to check what was going on during the weekend, I went to Moore Park Ravine, where the Beltline Trail goes through. For those who don’t know, it’s a 9 km cycling and walking rail trail here in Toronto and consists of 3 sections: the York Beltline Trail west of Allen Road, the Kay Gardner Beltline Park from the Allen to Mount Pleasant Road, and the Ravine Beltline south of Mount Pleasant Cemetery through the Moore Park Ravine.

Biking at Humber River Trail

September is one of the best months to go biking for myself. It’s not so hot, and you can start to see the leaves changing its colors, telling us that fall is coming. Since it was the hottest August in Toronto ever, I didn’t go biking so much, and I’m willing to compensate that this month. Taking a look at different places and trails to go biking, I’d discovered about the Humber River Trail, or better yet, trails. When I was looking at the map, I thought it was just one trail along the river, but now I had found out that there are different trails to do in the region.

David Balfour Trail Bike Ride

I remember writing in another post that one of the things I love the most about Toronto is that you can find amazing hidden places in the city to go biking. David Balfour Trail is definitely one of them. I had to go to St. Claire Station today, so I’d decided to go biking there and then come back by the trail. I did this path once, last fall, but starting at the Beltline Trail. This time, I started at St. Claire Avenue East, taking the trail for walking, actually, which I don’t recommend. There are too many stairs and part of the trail you can just bike if you have a mountain bike. But you can start taking the entrance at Avoca Avenue (going eastbound, it’s the first street on your right after Yonge). Continue reading “David Balfour Trail Bike Ride”

Biking to Scarborough Bluffs

Today I decided to go back to Scarborough Bluffs, since the last time I was there it was overcast and I didn’t get to go biking all the way to the beach – because I was too tired of my bike ride from downtown to there. So I “cheated” a little bit, and took the subway from Sherbourne to Kennedy Station, which is not far from the bluffs. It was a wise decision, because I could explore the area without being so tired, specially in a hot day like today (around 32 degrees). Continue reading “Biking to Scarborough Bluffs”

Biking to Humber Bay Park

There’s nothing like a sunny Saturday (the first one of the Summer!) to go biking. Sunny and quite warm, by the way. So, to enjoy the amazing weather, I went biking by the lake shore until Humber Bay Park. If you like to bike by the water, this is the perfect ride for you. I started my ride at Bay and Queen’s Quay, going to the West. The path is very busy during the weekends, and you need to be careful (sometimes very careful!) with the pedestrians. But, after Bathurst, the path gets better. After Coronation Park, gets even better, because you can start biking very close to the lake. Continue reading “Biking to Humber Bay Park”

Biking to Kew-Balmy Beach

It already feels like summer in Toronto (at least lately, you never know). So it’s time again to enjoy being outdoors and biking everywhere. Yesterday it was very hot and humid, and I went biking at the Lake Shore until Kew-Balmy Beach, right next to Woodbine Beach. Kew-Balmy is not so packed as Woodbine, so for me it’s a better place to rest after the bike ride and enjoy the beautiful view. It’s also where dog-owners come to let their pet run free at the off-leash park and go into the water. Continue reading “Biking to Kew-Balmy Beach”
