Open 24/7 July to October
Between the pier and the boardwalk on Centre Island

Synthecycletron was commissioned in 2006 by New Adventures in Sound Art and has been a Toronto Island favourite amongst Toronto cyclists and visitors ever since. It is an interactive installation where the public generates power by pedalling on stationary bicycles which in turn activate synthesizers and generate sounds connected to the pedalling movement.
