Come join us on Saturday May 5 for a free, casual bike ride to kick off Spring and enjoy the Magnificent Magnolia trees in blossom. Starting at 1pm, we will ride about 10km and visit several Magnolia trees and other spring blossoms in and around Downtown Guelph. We will be riding mainly on quiet residential streets and trails. Make sure you pack your camera and get some beautiful shots!
This year, artist Garth Laidlaw will make a cameo appearance, painting under a magnolia tree, among other special vignettes.
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!
The trip will begin at Speed River Bicycle at 135 Wyndham St. N. at 1pm and end around 4pm at Arthur Street N., for a free garden tea party where refreshments will be served. Spaces are limited, so please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
Helmets are encouraged.
This ride is sponsored by the Guelph Hiking Club and Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation.
