What's this all about? Experiencing the streets of Toronto while the weather is good. It's about fun with no political affiliation or agenda. This is our love letter to the city - an adventure around Toronto where the route changes every week. We have a few favourite haunts & trails we like to visit, but we love to switch it up. If you like FUN and ADVENTURE & have a good attitude, you should join us!
Every week the number of riders varies, but there's always music (often multiple sound systems), good people, bike lights & good fun. Don't expect to simply show up to a party, we hope you take the time to come & participate in bringing & being the party. Do note that Toronto Cruisers is not a race through the city, it's a cruise, meaning it's a leisurely ride that's appropriate for most skill & age levels (please use discretion when bringing young children). We stop several times on each ride & we try to vary where we end up stopping as well as changing up the entire route weekly.
We were inspired to create this ride once we'd seen what other cities had created around their bike cultures. People getting together, having good clean fun, building community & breaking up the monotony of life. Toronto Cruisers officially started in 2014 & we've since inspired & supported other rides locally as well as internationally. We continue to encourage new rides in different cities based on the same principles we hold dear.
Toronto Cruisers has no external funding, but are always looking for potential partners. We are entirely self funded & have instituted a recommended donation program since 2020 in order to keep the project alive. Our members, riders & friends put in the time, effort & hours to make this event happen. Our many thanks & respects to them all. If you're in a position to help support what we do, you can find the Donate button following this section or at the top of the menu bar. Many thanks to you all!
As part of the Toronto Cruisers mandate, we also have bonus rides during the year, which typically include taking part in Bike Party, Bike Rave & Nuit Blanche among others. Please visit our social media accounts for further information about ourselves & our events.
