Following is the list of interesting bikes making it over the mountains to Hot Springs this year. Reading this list, you wonder if the year is 1980 something, or if the year is 2066, oil is gone, carbon fiber bikes have all disintegrated into brittle little pieces, and this is a  list of an intrepid band of survivors making their way south on the only bikes that have survived the collapse of civilization.

Andre Swiss-Tex  Bohren Surprise
Ian   Woods Old Bianchi from the early 80’s . Neither fancy nor elegant , but at least it’s Italian ??
Nick   Woods Not sure yet , but most def something old and steely !
Brace  Hayden Most likely, a well-used Nashbar I bought with my lawnmowing $ my in 1991?
Teagan   Hayes My Jamis has been on many adventures with me, including a 2400 mile trek from the Yukon Territory to Yellowstone N.P.
cathy  galbraith TBD
walt  chauner 1985 davidson
Chris  Sauve Miele – early 80’s- been ridden on Cino twice before
Kathryn  McEnery My 1985 Trek 520.  Used for Ragbrai XIII (1985), two rides on Seattle to Portland, and Cino 2011.
Mario  Enriquez Custom 1985 lugged steel Davidson or….. Surly Pugsley done up in a muey CINO style!
Adam  Cosic Could be one of three -1994 Bridgestone XO3 – think Pineapple Bob.1970’s Olympian lugged steel frame with a sweet apple green patina, or a Hansome Devil tourer build – well see wich one is going on the day.
sarah  bilal well- i hope to  have a new bike before the ride- so we will see?!
Peter  Leander not sure, but it sure makes my butt hurt!
Tom  Leander Felt mountain bike
Aaron  Grable 1980 Fuji America.
Jeff  Nelson Not sure about the bike yet…but I’m thinking it will be orange so I’d like to get an orange jersey if possible
David  Conner 1985 Eddy Merckx w/Molteni liverey and Campy Record groupo
Adrian  Kien Single speed, steel, Motobecane Fantom Uno. Brooks Saddle. It is special because it is my bike. There’s nothing overly special as far as products go, but we’ve been through so much together.
Leif  Bjelland 84 Ciocc
Adrian  Kien I ride a Motobecane Fantom Uno. It is a single speed cyclo-cross bike. It is not special from an outsider’s perspective, but very dear to me as I ride almost every single day. It is steel, the brake cables are exposed. I think it qualifies as a modest Cino bike.
pete  kalos not sure yet
jay  marschall 72 schinnn le tour single speed
Mike  Morawski 88 specialized RockCombo, rumor has it only 500 made that year.
Chuck  Haney 1988 Bruce Gordon Touring, Rode it across country

Christine  Reino Rivendell Sam Hillborne
steve  bjorklund 70,s windsor profesional
Noah  Singer Single speed Ibis Hakkalugi. CX bike with one manly gear. It’s carbon, but it’s all I have. I’ve converted it to SS, and put on toe clips. It also has exposed cables so I guess it qualifies for the Heroica category. The only cool thing about it — The rear brake boss is called “The hand job”.
Steve  Brain Steel cross bike converted to single speed.
Corbin  Schwanke Single speed steel, not vintage
carl  ambrose surry pacer.   I’ll have new tires
cohen  ambrose ’80 san renshow

Ada  Montague Kona Dew Drop – made possible by a grant!
Federico  Piola The history of “Mi Heroica Dama” is unknown, she has a hard of steel and awaits patiently for another dusty, gravely, and painful “Heroico” ride!
Risa  Sibbitt haven’t decided. it’s either old school with drop down shifters, or it’s my steel bike with older school pedals.
Brett  Tallman My bike is a Schwinn Voyager SP which was built as  a touring bike in 1984. In 1985 I rode about 4000 miles through Europe – thousands of miles and 27 years later she’s still going strong as a converted cross bike.

Mark “Lucky”  Loncar 71 Gitane Supercorsa
David  Secrest 1980 SR
Benjamin  Irey Rivendell Atlantis
Earl  Craig singular single speed, or early 80’s fuji
David  Cummings 1988 Specialized Sirrus – first and only road bike I ever purchased.  Please, please, please, please, please, please move the “heroic” status of bikes up from 1987 to 1988. 😀 It does have a steel frame, downtube shifters, stock Shimano 105 toeclips, exposed cables, and can be switched to non-indexed shifting (however it does have SIS, the first successful, reliable, indexed shifting system). I also have a vintage helmet to match.  As you can see, I’m a bike-nerd.

Sheila  Moore Pretty in Pink
Ryan  Marsh Will be a 1970 Raleigh single speed or a 1985 Nishiki.
Kyle  Watkins I’m not sure what bike I’m riding.  It will be a cyclocross bike. Probably with gears this year (I know – I’m lame). If it does have gears, it will be the newest bike I have and most likely might even be its inaugural ride. Not very heroic, I know.

Roberts Essie My husband bought this big purple 1970’s Schwinn Paramount Tandem and I’ll be hanging onto the back, white knuckled, screaming, and asking him to brake more
Hunt Nathan It’s cheap and looks like it’s made from plumbing parts in a Chinese sweat shop, but came with an Italian sounding name on it: Vilano.
Meador Michael It’s hauled one big-ass man for a number of years.  It’s steel, it’s real, and I know I said it last year, but it’s killed a deer.
Ludwig Blake 1972 Gitane  a one year veteran of the Cino Ride
Tanner Kate ???
