Come join The Guelph Hiking Club on Sunday, May 5 for a free, casual bike ride to kick off Spring and enjoy the Magnificent Magnolia trees getting ready to bloom. We will ride about 12km on mainly quiet residential streets and trails around some of the quaint neighbourhoods of Guelph. Make sure you pack your cell phone and get some beautiful shots of these beautiful trees getting ready to bloom!

For added fun, we’re having a costume contest to brighten the day. There will be prizes for: The Best Dressed Cyclist, The Most Outlandish Ensemble, and The Best Spring Bonnet, so get your best outfit ready!

In addition, we are honoured to be joined by mixed media artist Rosanne Morris, who will be busy painting under one of the magnificent magnolia trees. Rosanne’s current work blends photo-based digital images with acrylic paints and pastels.

The trip will begin at Speed River Bicycle at 135 Wyndham St. N. at 1pm and end at Arthur Street N., for a free garden party where refreshments will be served. Spaces are limited, so you must register at [email protected] in order to participate.

Helmets are encouraged.

Prizes and refreshments courtesy of Speed River Bicycle, The Wike Bicycle Company, and Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation.
