From August 18-20th, Sugar Beach gets transformed into Toronto’s largest outdoor movie theatre. Movies will be shown under the open skies on a two-sided screen on a barge in Toronto Harbour, and best of all it’s free! And you never know, you may just experience a #RandomActsOfPizza 😉

These days we’re totally into the Martin Goodman Trail, Leslie Street Spit, or Taylor Creek Park, but there are tons of options for all types of bicyclists. Here’s a copy of the Toronto Cycling Map to help plan your route.
