After a hot dreary summer of smoky haze here in Montana, the weather broke to the clearest blue skies that we haven’t seen for quite some time. Perfect temperatures and road conditions for the weekend.

We can’t thank mountaindave enough for his work in setting up such a great ride but also for setting the friendly tone of the event. Four of us came over from Bozeman as first timers and were warmly greeted. We felt completely welcome by the entire group of very strong riders. I think the friendly atmosphere is a reflection of Dave’s personality, composure, and thoughtfulness amid a steady flux of activity. The volunteers were awesome. Hats of to you Dave!

Speaking of hats, perhaps davester will post a photo of his helmet. Our group came up on him after his wreck. Davester was a great patient allowing us to practice our EMT skills and enduring a lot of poking, prodding, and several confusing level-of-consciousness questions. Hope you’re doing well Dave and your helmet will make a great trophy.

My special hero is my wife Kathy, 62 year-old cancer survivor now fighting osteoporosis and suffering the misfortune of being married to a miserable scoundrel. She was the Lanterne Rouge of the 2021 Cino but did it all on her pedals and still finished around 3:30 on Sunday. I’m so very proud to be her riding partner.






This is a truly unique and very rewarding road biking event! We met some great folks and kindred spirits.
Thanks again MountainDave!

Had a great time at Cino, and was happy to meet many BF folks. I was part of a small group that took a wrong turn on day one, adding about 10 extra miles (mostly uphill!) to get back to the lunch stop, which pretty much killed my right knee. So, I opted not to continue riding after lunch and on Sunday. However, my Peugeot PX10 was able to finish the ride Saturday, as I donated it to the young gentleman heretofore known as "the Fuji guy," whose right pedal was stripped out on his bike. He was grateful to be able to finish the ride on my bike.

So I spent the rest of Saturday and Sunday doing some volunteer work, including helping rccardr set up the Martini Bar at the top of Nine Mile Hill.

I would like to thank mountaindave and all the volunteers for a great event, all the wonderful fellow riders I met, Alameda's for putting me up in a room on short notice (I was camping otherwise), Kila Pub for opening up for us on Sunday when they otherwise wouldn't have, and the great state and people of Montana (my first time visiting).

Not riding half of Saturday and all of Sunday enabled me to take more pics than I could have otherwise. They are here on Flickr.

Also, I will have very different gear choices for next year. I suspect many have said this after their first Cino.

I took just a couple of photos, letting my stoker be the photographer. Thomas will post some in a couple of days, when his post count gets past ten.

First off, I want to say thanks to davester, and wish him well and a speedy recovery. He was kind enough to pass along some jerseys, one of which went to my son.

nlerner came through for us in a big way for Cino. Neal packed a 27" tire across the country, so we could make the ride. Kudos to you sir. We are very grateful for that.

We had a great ride( not without problems). The folks helping out were fantastic. They were all very encouraging and helpful. It was nice to see everyone so upbeat, especially when we were sorta suffering. It definitely helped to motivate us to push on.

When we overshot the lunch stop, three other riders steered us back to it(after they themselves overshot it by several miles more). Trust me, it was worth going back to.

My son is thirteen years old. Everyone that he encountered gave him the utmost respect and made him feel welcome. He was glad to chat with several BF members along the ride and at dinner. Thank you all for that.

Here's a few pictures


Somewhere nearing the end of day one

Day two, lunch and the beginning of the grind..

Two numbers on this bike.

We finished in good time on Sunday.

This was my first Cino but I hope it won't be the last. What a great event! My friend Andy Speier got me to get my high school Trek fixed up to heroic running condition and we had quite an adventure. I didn't get enough photos but a few, mostly of my crew are here on my smugmug site. I can't post the link because I don't participate here much but if you go to loomis.smugmug.com and go to cycling -> bike trips -> 2021 -> Cino Rider 2021 you can find them.

Couldn't sleep, so I edited all my photos and loaded them to Flickr in case anyone wants a sneak preview (link is in my sig), but now I'm sleepy and gonna go sack out for a few hours. More later!

Thomas and Roger 1st team EVER to finish both days on a tandem. I cannot imagine how challenging that must be. Huge respect to the Morrisons.
They deservedly won the "White Handlebar" award on Saturday by a wide margin in the popular vote.

People are stepping up. I'm almost satisfied.

Any reports from the Saturday night festivities?

Thanks Matt. I believe(according to mountaindave)Thomas is the youngest rider to complete both days of Cino.

One other thing has also come to my attention:
The only reason Thomas rode Cino was so he could drink at least eight sodas over the course of two days...


This artwork was given to us for the 'White Handlebar Tape' award that Matt mentioned above. It was really a great honor for Thomas and I.

Another fun, adventure-filled Cino! Thanks a million to our intrepid Director Dave and his incomparable support crew; thanks for keeping the fun and challenge of Cino alive and thriving, mountaindave !

Pictures tell the story. Here's everything I got out on the roads over the course of two glorious-weather days; if you were there, I probably got a photo or two of you.

Whitefish weather Friday evening; doesn't that look like the beginning of a tornado?



No tornado; got this instead:



Saturday morning, just before the start. Who can you identify in this photo?



Neal, Dave Kirk, Alex, and Scott riding Matt's Singer display varying levels of enthusiasm just prior to the off:



Derek with the yellow helmet, Thomas and Roger with their McElroy tandem and matching gear, VRJAKE in the red, white, and blue helmet, SquireBlack in flo-green in the center, gugie at bottom center and davester in the green, white and red jersey:



Director Dave with last-minute update/instructions; Matt listens intently. Note Thomas' new Zeus on the right:



The gang's all here and ready to go:



One-winged rccardr, out for this year's event, nevertheless shot photos and added support over the course of the weekend. Doc is standing by the rear doors of the red van. I'm looking forward to his pics and story seen from a different perspective:



Yeah, it's fuzzy. Still figuring out some settings. But still - we are off!



Dave Kirk, fastest of Day One without getting lost, astride his beautiful self-made custom:

Small bunches, trios, pairs and singlets form, break up, and re-form throughout the course of each day:



Mark, Dave, Thor, and Neal:



Matt does a low-level flyby - and the guy with him? I didn't catch his name, but he was an enthusiastic participant, and had some great riding stories over the course of both days:



I think I can make out Bob Freeman and Scott (up from Tucson riding Matt's Singer - he's in the blue jacket), and I'm pretty sure that's John ( VRJAKE ) next to Scott:



This is also Cino:



Rolling hills, conifers and a slowly-burning-off mist add to the early-morning mood:



Jim ( squirtdad ) hanging tough for the first half; he would make the call later in the day to get off the bike and join the support crew for the remainder - an example of how Cino is a different thing for everyone, and everyone has a unique story after all is said and done. Thanks for sticking around and getting stuck in, Jim - next year!



Clear skies, beautiful scenery and bikes - a trifecta of awesome:



Enjoying the paved early section before the rough stuff begins:



My shadow kept up with me all day:

Fun stuff seeing all the photos. Been 8 yrs since I did Cino - amazing time has gone by that fast. I guess chasing kids does that. Would love to do it again but based on my spine condition these days I'm not sure the body could take the pounding. Fond memories for sure of a fantastic event. Thanks for the photos everyone.

Thomas has assured me he'll be riding the 58cm Zeus by next year. It's not much of a step up in size from his 56 cm Serotta.

Scott and Bob:



Looks suspiciously like a flat - complete with helpers:



johnnyace gets down to business as we commiserate with him. John was on his way lickety-split after an assist from Gil and Jason; CO2 inflator for the win!



Neal:



Mark:



Ross from Seattle was riding a beautifully-kept Ross Signature - with some really fat rubber:



Dave, Mark, and John ( VRJAKE ). The rider in the grey helmet and civvies ended up losing a pedal off his Fuji, but still finished the event - on John's ( johnnyace ) Peugeot PX-10. John had to abandon due to a knee issue on Day One and, like Jim, joined the support crew for the remainder of the event. That's Cino!



In addition to great stories, this dude's Alan was immaculate:



Bacon Lady getting down:



Summit of Browns Meadow; time for a rest and regroup - and bacon, of course:

It was pleasure meeting Jim - he’d get my vote for Mr. Congeniality. He was always stepping up to help wherever you’d find him. Just after helping Josh (?) fix a flat, we came up on davester after his wreck. Even though his EMT credentials had expired, Jim still knew his stuff and was great in helping with Dave’s assessment, loading, and improvising an arm sling. On Sunday, there he was again helping out with the lunch stop before the climb.




On another note, I was amazed at the abuse these old road bikes could endure. The ol’ Vent Noir sucked up everything Cino threw at it and only came away a bit dusty and muddied. I might have to clean the chain.

A very different Cino for me this year. Due to a serious shoulder injury and impending surgery, was unable to rife but still wanted to attend and help out. As a result, less perspective of riders on dusty roads, and more of folks leaving and arriving various destination points. Took over 400 pictures in two days, many of which are out of focus or poorly framed, but hey, it's a one armed photographer! I'll post First Day pics now, with Second Day pics to come. Eventually, I'll post a link to the finished Flickr file for those who want to see the whole shebang.

Hans affixing DD's Casati with the Official Stamp Of Approval

Scott flew in from Arizona, had full Concierge level service from Matt, who drove him in, provided the bike, and likely gave him snacks as well.

Dave and Thor, with whom I've ridden various portions of Eroica four times. Dave was much worse for wear later trhat day

Fog? Low clouds? Call it what you'd like, but this was what it looked like at the start

And this is what is still looked like an hour or so later until we climbed above it on our way to help out with lunch

The lunch spot was, as Dave put it, "Jaw-dropping". Volunteers drove it all in, set it all up, and took it all down afterwards.

Really just amazing- private land has this view!

One of many custom bikes in the event- this one a Thompson

Dave Kirk's private build- recently finished with Reynolds 753 tubes that he got decades ago when he worked at Serotta

Money shot!

An unusual Bob Freeman picture: not on an amazing &unusual classic bike, AND smiling!

Top of Brown's Meadow; the woman by the truck was riding a 70s Schwinn Le Tour!



And here it is:



While Mel and Vince arrive in the support truck, Bob and Dave ( davester ) discuss Cino matters. Unfortunately, Dave crashed heavily on the following descent to pranza. As luck would have it, others arrived immediately to render aid. I just learned one of those assisting was Jim - somehow I missed out on that important detail! He really did have the total Cino experience - and I'm sure Dave was glad he was there. Get repaired and back on the road soon, Dave!



The start of a long, twisting downhill run to lunch - the riding surfaces of Cino 2021 were optimal, hands down. I don't know if I'd have survived puncture-free if the rocks had been as bad as 2014!



One hand on the bar, always, on this stuff; note my number tag isn't having it:



Road to pranza, Day One:



Money shot!



All I did was ask them how their rides were going!



Could one pick a more picturesque picnic spot?



Lost a water bottle on the descent; Alex lent me one as he was carrying three. The Casati handled everything the road threw at it; the perfect Cino bike (Matt called it the representation of my alter-ego, or words to that effect):

This is a truly unique and very rewarding road biking event! We met some great folks and kindred spirits.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife. She was so bright and cheerful even on the tough climbs

I don't think he is on BF; Would you mind if I share your picture with him via Facebook?

Sure, no problem - and I bet he'll be in a few more pics I posted last night/early this morning. Sharing is good

The Bikes of Cino 2021:

Masi Nuovo Strada:



Soma, Univega and an Ibis Mojo:



80s Eddy Merckx with pantographing:



Raleigh Mountain Tour Elkhorn:



Mark's 70s Raleigh Grand Sport with its outrageously drilled hub flanges:



Shiny - and still relatively clean! - 80s Alan aluminum:



Alex's Maurice Woodrup by Kevin Sayles:



Derek's Benotto torture-machine which required he repair no less than 5 flats and jury-rig the rear brake caliper to the frame with zip-ties after losing the front brake bolt and having to steal the one off the rear! He made it safely through both days and completed his maiden Cino:



70s Galmozzi:
