About the Tour

This tour is trash! Bike the Lower Don River with us and discover how Toronto was shaped by what we throw away. We will talk trash about our manmade waterways, the hidden treasures unearthed from our mountain of filth, and the nocturnal critters that rely on our discards.

This tour will be led by Heritage Toronto staff, Chris Bateman and Meg Sutton.

Meet at the Bike Share station located at the end of the entrance road to the Brick Work from Bayview Avenue.
