As far as a name, how about "Scozim's Scramble"?

2nd week in July should be good for weather, and having done Cino in 80 degree weather, well, how bad could it be?

No, gotta keep my name outta this. I completely enjoy riding my C&V bikes with other C&V fans, especially those on BF. Cino just solidified in my mind that this could be done in other areas.

Cino is great, but it hurts.
What would be your start and end point?

by the way, EVERY state should have a Cino!

Corse Palouse?
Palouse Classic?
Ferrous Appalousa?

we need a name!
A two day function would be great, however, that's an area I would be looking for help. I have been using Colfax, Wa as the start and stop point. If we added a second route as part of this we could make a couple of different routes on paved roads. I agree that having everyone together like they do, for the most part, at Hot Springs during Cino would be great bu I'm not sure how feasible that would be.

The rides to the Snake River via Almota and Wawaii are great but do include some climbs.

Input is definitely welcome which is why I am posting this now so we can work out all the logistics.

I personally have a half dozen decent bikes in the 61-63cm range ready to go gravel grinding at a moment's notice. All but one are up for grabs. I'm betting several others in the neighborhood will have several spares in various sizes they could make available for C&Vers who would be hard pressed to bring one of their own.

Yeah, lodging is scarce down there. Colfax looks best for any services outside of Pullman or Spokane

Very cool offer. I love the PNW so I can be tempted. I was just thinking that I've been very tempted to get a bike friday for airlline travel but that won't work for a C&V ride.

If there's any interest among the Chicago group in a Kettle Moraine northern unit ride (just north of Milwaukee) then I'd be happy to organize a metric century distance. The scenery is lovely glacial terrain, and the stops along the way have all the Wisconsin flavors. Not so much climbing, just smaller rollers. All pavement. Perfect terrain for a vintage ride. My stoping grounds, though I can't add the song and story to it that RT did for Mineral Point.
Could load the bus with der mid-westerneer's. Tap the keg of PBR, Cino here we come ... hahah

A cool option could be Boyer Park on the Snake River for an overnight if we could book enough space - Boyer Park and Marina

It would make a great gravel bike. I've been riding a bridgestone xo-2 on gravel but I'm not sure it qualifies with brifters and clipless pedals!
Mig, the NCC Gravel Metric isn't C&V-specific, but is in the Midwest. The proportion of gravel and "un-roads" to pavement is about as high as they can make it.
