The First Best Ride:
A two-day vintage bike ride in Montana
Ride through time to a corner of Montana that the world forgot. Meet vintage bike enthusiasts and geek out over custom builds. Enjoy sweeping panoramas and eat like like the champions of the great tours. Covering over 100 miles in two days (mostly on dirt and gravel), you will revel in the exquisite camaraderie that is unique to Cino. The tradition and spirit of the ride revolves around vintage bikes. That said, we welcome all non-electric bikes and their riders.
This year's theme is randonneur - loosely translated to “ramble” in French - rooted in the spirit of self-supported long distance riding at one's own pace. We will break the classic randonneur rules a bit by providing a delicious buffet for lunch, water and snacks along the route, and a gear shuttle to Hot Springs, but we invite you to load up your panniers or handlebar bags and hit the gravel with us. Also included in your registration is a catered three course meal with wine or beer, served in style on the evening of day one. Don't forget your fancy dress togs for the dinner!
The Cino will be a truly memorable ride for you and it is also a fundraiser for Kalispell Montessori! Funds raised through this event will be put towards student scholarships so that more Flathead Valley children can experience a quality Montessori education.
