The First Best Ride:
A two-day vintage bike ride in Montana from Kila to Hot Springs and back
This is an event like no other. 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 while avoiding the sweep. Eat like like the champions of the great tours. Revel in the exquisite suffering that is unique to Cino. Join us!
This year we have a theme: vintage mountain bikes! The same general rules apply: pre-1987, steel, lugged, friction shifting, un-suspended, etc. But there will be some exceptions: fat tires, beartrap pedals, flat bars, etc. But 2" tires will be too easy, you might think. Au contraire mon frère, there's plenty of gnar out there! (And stay tuned for a special guest announcement.) What kind of mountain bike should you ride? Take a trip back in time with this video below posted by a Cino alum (he's in the video!).
A fun ride for you and 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. You can donate even if you can’t attend Cino this year!
