According to Cyclepath, Toronto’s bicycle traffic has increased by more than 100% during the past six years. Meeting the needs of this growing population of athletes is Cyclepath’s goal, whether those needs be a fresh set of wheels or the protein bars necessary to pedal straight to Greenland. From racing bikes to cruisers by brands such as Trek and Giant, their large inventory holds an ideal fit for any rider. A knowledgeable staff helps customers navigate through a slew of cycles and accessories, and also performs repairs to keep rides purring like kittens rolling down the street on giant yarn balls.
Since 1994, the bike enthusiasts at Cyclepath have delivered prompt service and knowledgeable advice alongside an extensive inventory of bicycles and parts from top industry brands. Patrons can peruse the racks of bikes by Norco and Devinci or check out the lineup of parts and accessories by Shimano, Axiom, and Topeak. Cyclists in need of service and repairs can employ the expertise of the in-house mechanics. These cycling savants provide owners with a free estimate and a full run-down of the work that’s needed, ensuring that customers can stay within their budget or realize that it might be time to trade in for a penny-farthing, which costs a penny.
Tour de Green Belt weaves waves of participants through Rouge Park, a scenic stretch of Ontario's Greenbelt. Originally established as a fresh-air festival on wheels, the event has since amended its "Bikes Rule, Feet Drool" decree to include hikers and joggers, as well. Multiple cycling and running routes provide majestic views of the area's natural terrain, and designated stops along those routes encourage further exploration. At Bob Hunter Memorial Park, cyclists celebrate a Canadian environmental hero, and at a newly created wetland, racers can snag cups of water at rest stations or sip from marshy puddles just like the original marathon runners of old. Once across the finish line, participants gather to mingle and refuel on a freshly prepared lunch crafted from locally sourced foods.
