The French and British Forts of Toronto – A Bicycle Tour: (Saturday, May 5, 11 am to 1 pm). Bicycling is a unique and exciting way to view Toronto's early history. Fort York, in partnership with Jane's Walk and Heritage York's Lambton House, hosts this event, beginning at Lambton House, at the edge of the Carrying Place Trail. From there, we will ride to Teiagon, the site of the 17th-century Seneca Village and the Magasin Royal of 1720. Following the Humber Bicycle Trails, we will stop and explore the sites of Toronto's second French fort. Continuing along the Martin Goodman Trail we will go to where Fort Rouille, the last French Fort, once stood. This free tour will end at Fort York, a British fort and the place where urban Toronto (then York) was founded, heralding the end of the French era of Toronto. Tour starts at Lambton House (4066 Old Dundas St, York, ON M6S 2R6; 416-767-5472) and includes free admission to Fort York National Historic Site.
