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.
C2C on a road bike (done the MTB one). Learn to wheelie/endo/trackstand/gap jump before I'm really too old.
Bike tour through France/Europe.
One o'them Scottish Whiskey Trail thingies.
Fruita Fat Tire Festival
....and some other stuff.
redo JoGLE in under a week
SDW (preferably in a day)
Ride a TdF stage (mountains)
OD Tri (August as long as my foot heals)
Try all the trail centres in the UK
Ride some trails abroad
24 hour event, maybe even solo
C2C in a day
Learn to Wheelie and all those other tricks
oh, and I like LGs idea of one of those whisky trail thingies
My girlfriend's 14 year old daughter (who happens to be a serious athlete) has been pestering me to take her out. How do I teach a kid (who doesn't even have the right bike) how to mountain...
