    I love that you documented these goals like this. I need to do the same. There is irrefutable proof that writing down specific goals helps you achieve them. Well done, sir.

    Just saw that Travel #9 is to ride a few stages of the Tour de France. Have you thought about doing L’Etape du Tour?

    I did it in 2010 and it was an awesome experience. You get all the fans along the course and then you can watch the pros ride it a few days later.
