As of today, it's unofficially official - Cino 2022 has been scheduled for pre-fire season on the weekend after our nation's birth: July 8-10, 2022. We begin planning details soon, hopefully registration to be released no too far into the new year. Fun stuff like the Concours d'Elegance will return. One of the parents is already planning wool jerseys. We're testing out caterers. We plan on returning to the full monty this year!

I plan on this being the last date alteration. I know some will be in the same boat, Dr., my apologies.

There were lots of factors that lead to this change. The biggest one was fire season. Despite the notion that global warming is a ďhoax,Ē we seem to have smokier and smokier summers.

September was nice, but it was also the first week of school - a non-starter for teachers. We still risked fire season. If Reed and the guys hadnít taken an official break in 2017, we would have had to cancel Cino because of extremely unhealthy smoke. Itís the only year I havenít ridden/participated since I joined in 2012, and I even did it solo in 2020.

July is usually the start of warm weather here. June is supposed to be the wettest month of the year - it was the hottest this year. (July was actually cooler and I canít believe the forests didnít simply spontaneously combust.) But we can survive weather - our lungs canít survive smoke.

This August we just got supremely lucky. The week before Cino it was pouring rain. The week before that it was in the 90ís and firmly in the red unhealthy smoke zone. Iím not as early as usual, but Iíve put in my order with the weather gods so weíll see what they deliver.

And hopefully people can make it!

I don’t teach over the summer, so that likely will work for me. However, without Doc as our concierge, I might have to stay at Symes with @gugie and @northbend the whole time! Bring on the skank!

Thanks, @mountaindave!

Been wanting to do the Going to the Sun ride to Logan Pass ever since @iab posted some beauty shots on the Forums, so maybe plan on getting in a day early?

I'm in! Having crashed and DNFed half way through the first day of Cino 2021, I have unfinished business in Montana! July sounds perfect to me since I should be just back from a long sailing trip through central America around then (although I'm not so sure that sitting on a boat sipping margaritas and pulling on lines is the best Cino training regimen).

Things are going well. I had surgery about two months ago that involved installing a steel plate and a bunch of screws in my shoulder (no titanium or carbon for me!). I'm currently doing weight-bearing physical therapy exercises every day and have recovered most of my range of motion and a good bit of strength. I just started riding again a week or so ago but my regular biking buddies are typically leaving me in the dust on the climbs. Hopefully that will change soon.

I rode it when I did the ACA northern tier cross country. The pass was still covered in snow though. That ended up being a plus because cars were not allowed up the road or most of it so we had a lot of it to ourselves. Still there are so many great roads to ride on in Western MT So you canít really go wrong.

The Sun Road will be open to cars by July, but it could still be fun to ride. The new ticketing system limits the number of cars to get in the gate so it isn't bumper-to-bumper traffic during the day. Navigating the ticketing system, however, can be a bit of a challenge. We'll see what they do with it this next season.

Should we make it a requirement that you have to have had a shoulder injury to be Cino for 2022?

"To quote the first draft of John F. Kennedy famous speech (he eventually decided to go to the moon instead of do Cino): We choose to ride the Cino on bikes older than a decade, and do the other things. Not because they are easy, but because they are hard.."

I always seem to go down on my left side. Amazingly, I haven't broken anything (knocks on wood), but my left arm is a little jacked-up sometimes. Always figured it was because I was left-handed, but what you say has merit!

5 days post-op, leaves 6-7 months to train so I'd say I'm in. Will be in the "battered left shoulder" bunch from a proximate humerus fracture14 years ago. Don

I've already made reservations in Hot Springs.

Oddly, I've broken my left collarbone as well. No X-ray to post and no plate inserted....though it was from a '75 RD350 accident rather than a bicycle.

Doc, sorry to hear that you won't be there.
