This event is sold out. 

ITE Toronto is pleased to invite you to an in-person bike tour co-hosted with the City of Toronto’s Cycling and Pedestrian Projects group on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm (EST) in downtown Toronto. The bike tour will run for approximately 2.5 to 3 hours at a leisurely pace with several stops to view and discuss a variety of cycling infrastructure constructed in Toronto, such as cycle tracks, bicycle lanes, bike boxes, contra-flow lanes, sharrows, accessible platforms, neighbourhood greenways and a future protected intersection. A snack will be provided but please bring your own water bottle to stay hydrated and bag to store all items during the bike ride. It is recommended to wear a bike helmet, however, for those interested in the e-bike rental option, a bike helmet is required. In the event of rain or poor weather conditions, the bike tour will be rescheduled with alternative dates to be announced.

Location: Meet-up point at the northeast corner of John Street / Wellington Street West, Toronto (see map) and ending the tour at Simcoe St / Wellington St W. Closest bike stations to the meeting point are the Metro Hall Plaza and John Street / Mercer Street as seen on the bike-share system map. City and ITE staff will be on-site at the meet-up point and the two closest bike-share stations listed above to assist you.

Cost: The bike tour is a free event. Participants can bring their own bike for the tour or rent a bike near the meet-up point. The cost of the bike-share rental is at the responsibility of the participant. If you choose to rent a bike, it is recommended to arrive at the event 30 minutes prior to locate and setup purchase of the bike rental. Additional information on how to setup the bike rental and rates can be found here. For those interested in the classic bike rental, you can opt for the day pass or annual membership, and we will dock and undock our bikes partway through the tour.
