Bikers Bucket list, real one or fantasy
So if you had a bikers bucket list what would it be, or have on it.
For me, and as i am a realist i am thinking.
Ride all UK Trail centers.
do Italian, French and Swiss biking holidays in the mountains.
Do a 24 hour event.
Visit red bull rampage in the desert to see it live.
be able to do a wheelie for as long as i want.
Ride some of the american and canadian trails.
be good enough to do a european enduro event.

a) Mylene Klass, Jennifer Lopez, Meagan Goode or Kylie draped naked with the exception on high heels over a Cannondale SuperSix Evo in that typical "butt pouting" pose, saying "c'mon Stan, the saddles damp".
b) Riding the Atlas mountains for a week on a Titus El Guapo
c) Road Riding in the Etape du Tour or better still with a bunch of mates (next years BM ride?) spending a couple of weeks in the sun do that kind of social stage riding holiday for a bit.
One of the above is less likely than the others.aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....

A) Quit the booze, get fit, ride fast.
B) Ride the Tour Divide
B is considerably more likely than A
(Stan Look at Girona for cycling holidays, down on the coast sunny and some epic hill climbs to race up )

I'm interested in JoGLE and SDW too.
With some minor effort there's three events there with enough time to organise for 2014 if people are interested?aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....
