Family-Friendly Rides

Kirsten Maulucci

As a family business, we're all about outdoor sports we can do as a family. When the snow has melted and the skis are packed away, we love to get outside and be active in the warmer weather together. Here are our favourite places to ride with kids around Toronto and Collingwood.

Family Friendly Rides

Waterfront

Easily the most scenic ride in the GTA, we will never get tired of family ride along the lake. The path is nice and wide, as well as flat and paved, which makes it great for a leisurely stroll. When the sun's out, expect to see plenty of people running, wlaking, or biking this route. Bonus: there are lots of parking options nearby.

Centre Island

What could be more exciting than a ferry ride followed by a day of exploring on bikes? The majority of the bike paths on Centre Island are paved, with few sections made of gravel. There's no added charge for bringing bicylces on the ferry and there's plenty of exploring to do once you get there. We suggest stopping by the Franklin Children's Garden.

Fun Fact: the Toronto Islands are among the largest car free communities in North America.

Ward's Island

Quieter, and less frequented than its more popular counterpart, Ward's Island is just as easily accessible. It offers the shortest line at the ferry dock, and there's no additional cost for bringing bikes on board.

Gardner Belt Line Trail

A great green escape, allowing for plenty of family fun in the spring, summer and fall. This trail is wide, and unpaved, giving your kids plenty of space to ride and play, withoug having to worry too much about disrupting other cyclists or runners. There are plenty of benches lining the trail making this a great picture picnic destination.

Georgian Trail

The Georgian Trail is a scenic and family-friendly bike routse between Collingwood and Meaford that runs along the south shore of Georgian Bay. There are lots of opportunities to stop and enjoy the close by parks,
