|Yes, you definitely can. |
IN 1995, TORONTO WAS NAMED "The Number 1 Cycling City in North America" by Bicycling Magazine. The award, given only once before (in 1990), is highly coveted by cycling communities across Canada and the United States. The magazine attributed Toronto's success to an "impressive blend of programs, ridership and natural amenities," including its expanding network of onstreet bicycle lanes. These lanes, initially put on residential streets, are now being installed mostly on downtown arterial roads carrying typically 15,000 to 20,000 motor vehicles/day. They have been added to an already congested road network to improve the safety of cyclists and to encourage cycling.
While Toronto has fallen behind in recent years in terms of adding new bicycle lanes there is renewed interest and city council is planning many more bike lanes to help the environment and help make Toronto again one of the best places to bike.
You can bring your bike or you can buy one here - $70.00 to $500.00 depending on how good a bike you want. You can usually sell your bike when you leave Canada if you don't want to take it back with you.
