High Society Architectural Tour
Posted on 17 August 2007
Editors note: we seem to do a lot of tours, it's become an unofficial side business. From an architecture tour with Toronto's posh "The Society" to an insane tour with billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal (a surreal experience indeed), we have a rental fleet ready to go as well as some pretty knowledgeable tour guides.

Anyone who has ever rented a bike in Rotterdam remembers the almost-perfect experience of meandering about while looking at great architecture. Well, join Toronto Star architectural critic Christopher Hume as he takes members of Toronto's uber-hip club, "The Society" on an architectural tour of Toronto. Members of The Society will start their excursion at Curbside Cycle and tour around Toronto aboard the sturdy, comfortable, and uber-fashionable Batavus bicycles - which is important, because members of The Society take dress quite seriously - seriously, just check their website. And really, what better way to see Toronto architecture than on a Dutch bicycle? We like the idea of thirty dapper people riding on Dutch bikes looking around at architecture, it brings a real human scale to the event - it's almost archetypically civilized. Details are at The Society website.
