2017 Dog Days Wine Tour Information
Saturday, July 15, 2017 (Always the third Saturday in July)
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE ONLY THROUGH WEDNESDAY, JULY 12. AFTER THAT YOU MUST REGISTER ONSITE AT THE EVENT ON SATURDAY.
This is the eleventh anniversary of 'The Dog' and we hope to offer our guests the best ever experience on an organized event like this. We have modified some routes, changed some menus, and added a nifty new rest stop.. Sponsored by Silver Wheels Cycling Club, Inc., this website hopefully gives you all the information you need to choose the route best for you. Use the links below to check out all of our information.
If you are new to Dog Days, you should read our FAQ page first. Some of our Fs and some of your Qs may have changed.
The Merchandise page tells about the stuff we offer that can be purchased separately. Tees and jerseys can be ordered when you register, other items will be for sale at the event. Sizing guides are on this page also.
The Rest Stops page explains where our stops are and generally what we have to help you stay hydrated and energized. Each is unique, each is well-stocked.
The Area Maps page will help you find us in the universe. Well, in Ohio anyway.
The Cookout Menu is what it says. We go out of our way to provide our guests with a quality cookout.
The Wineries page offers a description of our three wineries and our new cidery that also serve as rest stops, depending on your route. Three different wineries, three styles of architecture, all great places to stop and linger before riding on. New to The Dog is a ciderhouse adjacent to a bakery... how cool is that?
The Lodging page offers suggestions for where to stay over if you are coming in from afar. Motels, B&B's and camping options are close by so you can start early and fresh.
The Route Maps page will provide links to our files you can print in color if you wish. We wait until county road crews are finished with all the changes before we publish these, usually a week or two prior to the event.
