Trees Bikes and a Pint: A Tribute to the Late Henry Kock

Celebrate the good things in life!

When: June 16, 1-3pm

2Rivers Festival and Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation team up to offer 10km tribute ride to the late Henry Kock, Guelph’s beloved horticulturalist, to celebrate his passion for trees, river systems, bikes and local beer. Enjoy stops along the way with University of Guelph arborist Sean Fox to discover some of Guelph’s magnificent trees. This is a family friendly ride on gravel trails and quiet streets. Mountain/hybrid bikes and helmets are encouraged.

Note: We will meet at the intersection of Florence Lane and Lawrence Avenue. The trip ends up at the Royal City Brewery where we reflect on the experience and slacken our thirst.

  1. Regrets that I will miss this; an out of town family event that weekend. Henry was an amazing person to work with; excellent that his life is being celebrated this way!

  2. So great to see this photo of Henry. This tour is a great idea! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to join you. Instead, I’ll be advising my niece on what trees to plant at her new farm. I’ll think of Henry as I do so.
