After seeing a couple other "bicycle bucket lists" I thought I would list some bike-related things I would like to do in my lifetime.
-Ride across the country. I've read some great descriptions of self-supported trans-america tours, but I'm starting to see that for something of this length, sag and a motel would not be bad.
-Do an organized tour in all 50 states. This might be tough because I've enjoyed doing tours through South Dakota enough to go back and do it again, and I enjoyed a Colorado tour last year so much that I'm going back twice this summer. If I keep repeating states, 50 could take a while.
-Take part in a couple of tours in my home state, CANDISC (Cycling Around North Dakota In Sakakawea Country), and RRIBT ( Red River International Bike Tour) which goes briefly into Manitoba. Also, I've lived in Kansas for 20+ years and I need to do BAK (Bike Across Kansas) someday soon.
-Mountain bike around Moab. My family doctor has a picture in his office of the white rim ride, and it looks awesome.
-Ride around Great Britain. Ireland, Scotland, the Channel.
-Pitch a tent in the Pyrenees during the Tour de France and cheer on the peloton. If I could get a picture of Lance, or George, or Levi, it would be cool to get it as they rode by with the mountains in the backgound.
I would love to do any or all of these things. Mostly, I'd love to be blessed with good health to continue riding for a long, long time. The rest is just gravy.
