I'm in!!!! 2013 Cino Heroica

Just completed the registration for the 2013 Cino Heroica - limited to 90 new riders and 60 past riders this year.

Totally stoked to do this with Northbend and his son. Anyone else in? Now I've got to get busy and build the bike for it.

Northbend's report from last year: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...t=cino+heroica

It sounds like a lot of fun but the prose on the website just kinda irks me a bit and I can't put my finger on it. I have the perfect bike for it too but that's a hell of a drive for a weekend of riding for me.

Don't take all that prose too seriously clasher. It's a friendly, down to earth, easy going bunch of folks just out for a fun weekend. For me, well worth the hassle of driving over from Seattle. Really looking forward to spending that weekend with my son.

oh! and scozim and rogerM too..

Almost signed up for it last year, but other things came up. It looks like it has grown the last couple years. I would like to do it this year, although I don't have a "heroic" bike.

Two weeks to go also - got the following text from the Cino organizers - this was sent to first time riders:

Congratulations! If you are receiving this letter then you are one of a very select breed to be included in the 2013 Cino Heroica ride on September 7thand 8[SUP]th[/SUP]. This is the 7[SUP]th[/SUP] year of the Cino ride and, as you probably know, this is the first year that the ride is sold out and there are many people on a waiting list.

In past years, the ride has been open to people riding any type of bicycle, and we have seen them all: fixies, single speeds, 3 speeds, coaster brakes, tandems, cross bikes, all the way to full suspension mountain bikes and 29ers. Yet, with the openness of the ride, the character and intention has always been to revisit the old days of bicycle racing by riding truly heroic bikes. With the popularity of the ride and the necessity to limit the number of riders, restrictions had to be employed. For the 2013 edition of the ride, you veteran riders are still allowed to ride whatever two wheeled contraption you have ridden in past years but we strongly encourage you to embrace the spirit of Cino and truly heroic bike that fits the description listed below.

For you rookie riders, you must be on a truly Heroic Cino bike. Revisit the cinorider.com website and become familiar with those heroic bike characteristics to make certain that your bike will meet the requirements. To avoid any tension filled, embarrassing moments at the start of the ride, send a photo and or description of your bike to the Cino judging committee ...

So, my photo of the PX10 was sent off and I'm officially one step closer:

"Your ride is exactly what we hope to see on the Cino ride. Way to go! We'll look forward to seeing you on Sept. 7th."

I'm envious.

I really am.

This looks like my kind of ride.

Maybe after I retire, as it is impossible to get away at that time of the year for me.

Have fun everyone and take a load of pics please.

Cino is something I have wanted to do, but reality always intrudes. Not to mention the 1700 mile trip each way. I am contenting myself with a mini Cino of my own over Labor Day weekend in the Ozarks. Enjoy your ride.

Rider list - some cool bikes listed here:

Looks like John Howard is back to ride this year. And there's a couple of riders from overseas.

I was just finishing up a gravel ride up the Iron Horse trail today when I ran into Roger M who was riding up to Rattlesnake Lake. I turned around and rode up to the lake with him then we descended back to North Bend and had a few beers, talking about our Cino Heroica plans. Friday before Cino, lets all meet up for dinner in Kalispell. Roger is on board...

They put me on the waiting list in June. I just couldn't commit to it at the time of early registration. It doesn't look like its going to happen for me this year.

OK, so I just got a a surprise e-mail from the Cino Heroica organizers saying I'm in! Really short notice given the event is in 10 days and I'm in Phoenix. I'd have to figure a way to pack the Nishiki for air travel and book a flight pronto.

What to do?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to pull this off. Its just too short notice. I've informed the organizers I'm passing and asked them to offer my spot to another rider. Next year though, I'm doing this!

A friend from Spokane and I are in. I could not get my full chrome 11.8 voyager to where I wanted it. So I am in on a retro Fuji Gran Tourer SE. Velocals did some decals for me, some Velo Orange stuff. As a first full rehab, it looks great. A purist would sniff, but at least its a great long hauler that got me through RSVP last year. Next year the chrome 11.8 for sure. Hope to see everyone over there. Now to figure which vintage camera to use.....

I shoot muzzle losders for the same reason. Five good shooters may be neck and neck but someone gets a flyer because their round ball had different ideas that day. And then folks laugh and keep going. Now imagine Formula1 where the drivers had to use manual transmissions and had nothing but none aero aluminum aroud them! Ciao!
