It is really flat. There are numerous ravines/rivers running through the city, including the Humber and Don Valley.

I, too, think it is a relatively flat city and quite easy to bike in, but it is not completely featureless in the topography department. Toronto slopes upward 696 feet in elevation from the lakefront (212 metres)
to its highest point. If you were trying to cycle north it is very unlikely you could cycle up the hill before St Clair without dismounting:
































Lot's of ravines:




On Sunday I visited Casa Loma (Castle on the Hill) and took this photo toward downtown. I discovered it is infinitely easier to bike home south than
riding north up to Casa Loma!:
