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.
