Cycling is a fun, healthy, and eco-friendly way to view Toronto’s early history.
On Saturday, June 9, 2012, David Juliusson, Program Officer at Fort York, will lead the annual Tour de Forts ride, now part of the new Heritage Rides series of bike tours in and around Toronto.
Here are the details for the tour, which will take about two hours:
“Meeting at 1:00 pm on the multi-use trail under the Old Mill subway station, we will begin by riding to Teiagon, the site of the Seventeenth-century Seneca Village. Following the Humber River trails, we will stop and explore the sites of Toronto’s first two forts.
“Continuing along the Martin Goodman Trail, we’ll arrive at the site of Fort Rouille, the last French fort. Participants can proceed to Fort York for a free tour at the conclusion of the ride.”
