It was a sunny, beautiful autumn day, with 20 degree temperatures, making it the perfect time for our first bicycle rentals in Toronto. We rented our bikes from Bike Share Toronto which is the same system as the BIXI Bikes in Montreal and "Boris Bikes" in London, so the bikes can be picked up and dropped off at many locations around the city. A full day pass costs $7, but you have to check your bikes in at any location every 30 minutes to avoid additional charges.
Starting downtown, we headed west, through a few intersections (with separate bike signals), until we ended up in Coronation Park where we took some time to admire the autumn colours in the trees.
As we ventured further along the trail, we felt like we were getting further and further outside the city so finally we decided that it was time to turn back. Unfortunately we had the wind and a couple of inclines working against us, but it was an enjoyable ride regardless.
