    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.
    Jump

    For fantasy
    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.

    You mean you have not done A, thought everyone had.

    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 )

    A 24hr solo
    Ride a TdF stage
    A week's 'training' roadie trip to Majorca

    Theres a common theme here - do you reckon we could get a warm week away BM Roadie trip organised? Sound like several'd be up for it.

    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?
