My name is Jillian, one of the co-founders of VeloGuide which was launched in October 2017 as a bold new initiative to connect the traveling cyclist with a bike and a guide all across the globe. I will be your virtual host and Jeremy will be your VeloGuide in Toronto.

We understand that when visiting a big city, getting out on a road bike ride can be overwhelming. Traffic, safe routes, fear of getting lost and finding a bike can make the idea a non-starter. VeloGuides Jeremy and Ricardo will take the guesswork out of it and you will truly be able to #ridelikealocal. His local knowledge and love of cycling make this experience unique!

Had a great timing riding through Toronto with Jeremy. He is a very good cyclist and made me feel comfortable riding in the heart of the city. We saw some really cool things that are off the beaten path of Toronto tourism. Got some great photos and stopped for a really delicious coffee.

I really enjoyed Ricardo's genuine nature on this VeloGuide experience! It was an energizing tour full of contrasts from cycling through the heart of Toronto on to trails and an urban wilderness park, great for photos of the skyline. It was super easy to enjoy this tour with Ricardo taking the lead on the route! An excellent guide, easy to chat with and highly recommended! Gracias Ricardo!

I had a fabulous time riding with Jeremy in Toronto. For one, he is a very strong rider, and a big part of the cycling community in Toronto, even spending time to help and train young riders and newbies in cycling skills once a week. He designed a great 2.5 hour ride leaving very close to my AirBnB, and was on time to meet up. Very personable and calm, he shared stories and has a strong knowledge of the areas viewpoints. He knew the route like the back of his hand, pointing out historical homes, gravel patches to watch out for, sharp corners to slow down for, and treated us to an excellent coffee and pastry at a local coffee shop. This ride is the true essence of what VeloGuide offers a guest. The ability to put my phone away and really pay attention to where I'm riding and what I'm seeing. Trusting a new friend and experiencing a new city on a bike without having to worry about what turn to make so I don't get lost. I'd highly recommend booking a Discovery Ride with Jeremy if you are ever in Toronto.

I did the Toronto discovery ride with Jerremy and Ricardo. Both had passion for cycling and their own unique perspective. I love riding in big cities and these guys make it super easy. I was set up with a carbon Trek bike that was new out of the box! I was actually surprised at how little traffic there was once we got out of downtown. Full disclosure that I am also the founder of VeloGuide but both Guys did a 5 plus star job! Oh... amazing coffee stop and recommendations for dinner.
