When spring arrives you know that cyclists are just champing at the bit to get out for a great ride to enjoy the weather and get ready for a new season of cycling. One regular spring event in Guelph is the Magnificent Magnolia ride and Wike was proud to take part this year.
More than 50 participants (and a bicycle trailer or two thrown into the mix) wended their way through Guelph checking out the Magnolia trees along the way. The route took them through Guelph’s quiet residential streets and the occasional thoroughfare.
It wasn’t all bike riding and kid bike trailer towing, though. Former Guelph councillor Lise Burcher joined in the fun and gave a talk at her home which featured, of course, the beautiful magnolia trees on her property. From there, the hungry horde headed to the stately home of Wike owners Bob and Anna. Cucumber cream cheese sandwiches on pink and green bread (magnolia colours, of course) along with tea and treats were enjoyed by all.
And no ride would be complete withou prizes! Best Dressed (congratulations Ruth Tabata), Most Outlandish (congratulations Richelle Forsey), and best spring pants (congratulations Victoria Coates).
Wike bicycle trailers was happy to participate in this fantastic local event. We hope to see you all at the ride next year.
