Wind turbines on winter day
Winter Winds

Energy is big news these days.

Love ’em or hate ’em, the wind turbines are here to stay in Essex County. I couldn’t help but notice them today – the only sign of white on a very brown February day.

I’m going to (try to) remain politically neutral on my business blog. The only kind of energy-usage we at FDC condone is that of you munching your way through a couple of apples and using that energy to push your pedals around this beautiful land o’ ours. Human-Powered.

That said, I think the turbines really lend something to our landscape. I noticed the other day they are featured on the www.townofharrow.com banner – what a neat way to brand our little place!

Come check them out!

New FDC logo!

All a-twitter since 2012!

Helicopter-Head

This may be the opposite of Farm Dog Cycles, the black to our white – but we like it.

It isn’t about quiet country roads, feeling the sun on your back or the wind in you hair – but it i does have a pretty big sense of awesomeness.

Imagine wine touring – by HELICOPTER. That’s right: PECWine Tours in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontairo offers a Helicopter Wine Tour, complete with three vineyard visits and tastings, and lunch at the very regal Huff Estates Winery.

Jealous!

 

(any pilots around want to help a girl out?!)

Riders Wanted!!

Farm Dog Cycles is a bicycle rental company – but we are also purveyors of cycling culture and all things two-wheeled. In other worlds, we are dorks. Bike nerds. Pedal-heads. We love to ride!

We are looking for other velo-enthusiasts to join some group rides. Likely a Saturday or Sunday morning ride until we get some of our daylight hours back, then we would love to add some weekday morning/evening rides.

Riding in a group requires a special skill set aside from making circles with your feet – and now is the best time to learn. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or new to the peleton we welcome your company. We only ask that you are comfortable riding between 25-30 kph for at least 60 min.

If you are in the county and interested in keeping up your winter fitness with some friends, please drop us  a line at meg@farmdogcycles.com
