The Humber Bay Arch Bridge not only boasts one of Toronto’s most popular biking routes, but also one of the best views of our skyline. The structurally elegant bridge linking Humber Bay Shores and Toronto’s West End provides a continuous ride along the lake’s green spaces.
Pick up a bike at Lakeshore Blvd W & Windermere Ave or Humber Bay Shores Park, and enjoy a ride across the iconic bridge. Don’t forget to stop at Sheldon Lookout! That’s one sight you sure don’t want to miss.
Hugging the shore by Toronto’s Exhibition Place sits Marilyn Bell Park Trail. Connecting Marilyn Bell Park and Coronation Park, the 3km route supports a dedicated, 4.5m wide path. Whether you are a beginner or experienced rider, this trail is perfect for riding of all levels.
The lush green space features viewing platforms, playgrounds, boardwalks and more! Stop by our Marilyn Bell Park station to explore all that this trial has to offer.
Looking for a protected lakeside path in the city’s core? The Queens Quay waterfront trail offers wide, two-way bike lanes and sights galore! Situated near Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, Queens Quay features an array of restaurants, stores, viewing platforms and more.
With eight stations along the trial, take a quick trip or a long cycle — it’s up to you! Our best suggestion? Head to Sunnyside Pavilion for an outstanding view from one of Toronto’s most iconic landmarks. Don’t forget to dock before you hop off to explore for longer periods of time. Once you’re ready to ride again print another code and jump on!
If you’re in the market for a quiet lakeside cycle, The Beach is for you. Connecting Woodbine Park and Balmy Beach Park, this ride is a relaxing city escape. With sandy beaches, harbour views and an abundance of greenery, you would never guess that minutes away lies the heart of Toronto.
Make the most of this trip by docking your ride at one of our four stations on route and take a load off by the shore. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
