The Distillery District

Leaving the financial district of Toronto behind, a couple hundred turns of our spokes took us back a couple hundred years. The Distillery District is one of the best preserved examples of Victorian industrial architecture on the continent. Established in 1832, the old distillery stopped producing distilled products in 1990 and in 2001, the decision was made to transform it into a vibrant artistic and cultural center in Toronto.

And vibrant it was. We carted our bikes down the central lane, bordered by Ethiopian sculptures. Besides a plethora of restaurants, people wandered in and out of floors and floors of art galleries.
