We'll explore my neighborhood of Ossington and adjacent areas by bike. It's mostly bike trails and parks, and we'll see street art and fine art, and talk about local history and current events. You'll get insider tips on what to do in these hip 'hoods—like where to spot Trinity Bellwoods Park's most famous residents, or how to get in the back door of Ossington's hidden gems. At the end of the ride, we'll stop for a snack. There's plenty to choose from in Ossington, where you can find everything from great craft beer and tequila, to homemade ice cream and Portuguese tarts.
Melinda And Brian
I'm an avid cyclist—it's my primary form of transport. I've used bike shares or taken bike tours in a variety of other places like Berlin, Washington DC, Dublin, Bogotá, Nashville, Brussels, Nicaragua, and New York. I love my neighborhood, and co-write the OssingtonVillage.com blog. I'm excited to combine my two passions for you.

We'll meet at Dundas and Ossington and explore Trinity Bellwoods Park, West Queen West, Liberty Village, Ossington Village, and Little Portugal. We'll bike and walk through vibrant neighborhoods where people work and live, and we'll stop for photos in parks, on the street and in cafés and graffiti alleys.
Bring a camera, and weather-appropriate clothing and gear, such as sunscreen. You can bring your own bike, or adult bikes are available for rent via credit card. Bring money for snacks on Ossington.
