Registration is full (150 riders) and we’re working off the waiting list at this point (if someone drops out, etc.)  If you have never signed up and are bummed you didn’t make it in this year, there is always next.  Just send a note to “” to be included in next year’s announcement.

For all of you wondering, jerseys are available to buy. This year’s design has certainly raised the bar on the definition of “cino” when it comes to bike wear.  Click here to view and purchase.

For those that haven’t heard, Jacquie Phelan is this year’s “Guest Rider”.  Mostly known for her mountain bike exploits, her history is definitely Cino. We’ll be putting her bio on the site soon, but click here to see her blog, or here to see her Wikipedia page.   She will be staying at the Whitefish Bike Retreat, see below for an opportunity to meet her at  a pre-ride get-together.

For those of you coming from out of town and looking for a place to stay that’s fun, appropriate, and different, we suggest the “Whitefish Bike Retreat”.  Fantastic settting, and they provide everything from camping, to dorm style accomodations, to private rooms. Cricket – the owner – is offering a 10% discount to Cino participants.   The retreat has a huge bicycle shuttle van, and  will be offering a shuttle to and from the Cino Heroica start for guests.  Click here to see the Retreat’s website, email, or call 406-260-0274.

The Bike Retreat will be hosting a pre-ride soiree on Thursday, September 5th.  More details coming, but it will be an opportunity to meet our Guest Rider Jacquie.   It will also be a show-and-tell opportunity for Cino bikes; we encourage participants to bring theirs.
