Welcome to the 2nd Annual Magnolias in Bloom Ride. Last spring, with the contributions from riders, we started a growing collection of magnolia trees featured throughout Hamilton. This year we have added some route suggestions to help you maximize magnolia sitings along a ride.
We recommend you use our map to walk or roll to nearby trees in your neighbourhood. This is an activity you could integrate into a necessary trip you were already planning (for example, a detour on the way to a grocery store, food bank, or other essential trips) or you could make it an outing to just get your body moving. Along the way, you may also see blooms like forsythia (bushes with bright yellow flowers), daffodils, and other colourful signs of spring and renewal. As you become more familiar with your neighbourhood magnolias, you may notice that the “star” magnolia trees with white flowers tend to bloom earlier than their pink-hued counterparts.
