For quite a few years I have conducted informative and fun bicycle tours, taking visitors from all over the world cycling around Kingston during our tourist season. It is a real pleasure to be able to ride around the city on a beautiful summer day, explaining at intervals why Kingston is such a special place, one so full of history and beauty.
My Downtown Kingston bicycle tour is 3 hours in duration and over the course of our ride you will see many things of natural and cultural interest, including the Queen’s and Royal Military College campuses, parks and the lakeshore trail, harbours and prisons, as well as British Empire landmarks and other buildings of architectural interest. No one has ever had a problem with the 14-kilometre distance, as the route is pretty flat and the pace is leisurely, and I can promise you an enjoyable and memorable experience. The cost for this tour is $35 Canadian per person for groups of 2-3 people, $30 Canadian per person for groups of 4-8 people, tax included.
For those who are more adventurous, I also offer a half-day Kingston Mills Picnic tour that makes its way up to these very impressive first locks on the Rideau Canal, where a tasty lunch will be served as we enjoy this UNESCO World Heritage site. On our way back into town we will stop by Barriefield Village, Fort Henry and the RMC campus. The cost for this tour and picnic is $55 Canadian per person for groups of 2-3 people, $45 Canadian per person for groups of 4-8 people, tax included.
I am a nationally certified Can-Bike cycling skills instructor and have a lot of experience leading group tours. Cyclists wishing to take these tours are strongly advised to wear helmets and must be willing to obey the rules of the road.

“I did very much enjoy the sights, the history and the introduction to architectural heritage. Mostly, Steve, I enjoyed your enthusiasm for good cycling within the city, and your natural, relaxed approach. It was fun being with you and capturing your spirit.”

Fresh and delicious food, full of options and choice! The WORKS was voted Brant County’s BEST Burger, and is known for its many (sometimes zany) toppings, our 100% Ontario AAA beef, and the vast array of choices, whether it’s vegetarian, healthy, or.. not so healthy! Don’t feel like beef? We offer 6 other patty choices for every “burger”: chicken breast, turkey, lean elk from Kanata, portabello mushroom cap, or veggie burger! We also offer meal salads, chicken sandwiches, and tons of fantastic sides, including fresh cut fries, steamed broccoli, or the best onion rings you’ll ever have. Feelin’ adventurous? May we interest you in a Hunka Hunka Elvis-inspired burger with peanut butter, bananas and bacon? Or maybe something a bit lower key, such as The Hipster with freshly caramelized onions, avocado and havarti cheese. We even have something if you’re feeling like eating the most boring burger of all time: The Plain Jane! We keep as many toppings and incredients local as possible! There is something for EVERYONE at The WORKS. We are located directly across from Harmony Square, where bicycle parking is available and in plain view. Feel free to watch what’s going on in Harmony Square (splash pad, anyone?) by sitting in front of our glass garage doors (which we keep wide open on those perfect weather days). Patio coming June 2015!
