Come join The Guelph Hiking Club for a free, casual bike ride to kick off Spring and enjoy the Magnificent Magnolia trees in blossom.

On Sunday, May 5, we will ride about 12 km 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 in blossom!

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 1 p.m. and end at Arthur Street North, 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.
