Pedego Around Downtown Toronto!
March 27, 2023
In a quiet neighbourhood just off Toronto’s busy downtown core, is Pedego Toronto. They are perfectly situated just east of the city centre. This (17 Carlaw Avenue) is where you ditch your car and grab an ebike. We think taking it all in is best done aboard an ebike. You can stop when you want to, park easy and get further than you would on foot.
Discover Toronto on an ebike
Where to start!? From Pedego Toronto, you can easily ride to The Beaches to the east of the city centre. This is a relaxed neighbourhood popular with families and tourists in the summer. Here you can enjoy four beautiful beaches, a lively boardwalk, and many trendy shops and restaurants.
Should you wish to ride west into downtown, head straight for the harbourfront! It’s a vibrant area of the city perfect for exploring on an ebike. Here you will find the landmark CN Tower as well as several galleries, museums, eateries, and other sights to check out.
The Martin Goodman
This trail is a fabulous bikeway (starting a few blocks from Pedego Toronto) that takes you the length of the waterfront all the way to the Humber Bay Arch Bridge. It’s a fantastic resource to get to where you’re going and a beautiful scenic ride.
The best way to explore Toronto Islands is by bike. Pedego Toronto is just four kilometers from the Toronto Island Ferry where you can board with your bike at the harbourfront. The island is home to beautiful beaches, a few cafes, the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse and spectacular views in all directions. Looking inland, the panoramic view of Toronto it worth the trip itself.
Ready for lunch? Head to either the Distillery Historic District or Kensington Market neighbourhood for great food and drink. Once a collection of derelict industrial buildings along the harbour, the historic distillery site now houses shops, galleries, and restaurants. It’s a creative blend of the past with modern design. Kensington market is a bohemian/hipster neighbourhood with Victorian houses, specialty grocery stores, boutiques, cafes, and international cuisine.
Because you’re not walking Toronto block by block, you’ve saved your feet for one of the incredible museums or galleries all located within seven kilometers of the waterfront. The Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Hockey Hall of Fame, and the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.
Immerse yourself in nature without leaving the city. Not out of reach with your Pedego ebike, ride the Martin Goodman Trail almost all the way to the end to find (about 12 kilometers) to find this massive greenspace complete with a zoo, nature trails, a swimming pool. In springtime, the cherry blossoms are incredible. Bikes are permitted. Ride with respect to pedestrians and nature.
St. Lawrence Market
Get a local farmer’s market feel at this indoor venue open year-round. There are so many food options here, we recommend coming hungry or with a fantastic feast in mind for dinner. Get meat straight from the butcher, taste an oyster shucked just for you. Shop fruits and veggies, pastries and cheeses, spices and much more.
