- A 14th SR

- Enough points to keep Brevet 25k within reach for 2019 (that would be about 40)

- Rennes-Brest-Rennes

- A successful Scottish 1000km.

To do more 200km rides in 2018 than 2017, so currently that means x4+.   My 'dream' is to do 3x DIY200km consecutive rides, with a decent sleep between each, in great weather up in Scotland...

- Ultra Randonneur ( failed the last two years to bag the tenth one  :( )

-  A dry Scottish 1000k (well it is a dream season)

- RRTY ( Already got Sept-Nov in the bag)

- At least one 1000/1200k on the continent (have these in mind Le 1000 du Sud, Borders of Belgium or Ronde Aliénor d'Aquitaine )

Very good! However, I was thinking of something that maybe included the distance in the name...

I'd like to ride one in Germany, but I haven't been out on a bike in two years.

Come to think of it, I haven't been out of the house much either.

I've got the all Super Randonneur series booked up, as TLC as it can possibly be. I've also got one of Undulates' epic 300 in Snowdonia and I am thinking of doing the new Cambrian 6C Super Randonee

A lot on the plate for 2018

Thinking Pendle 600 for 2019... ;D

Minimum is another SR.

I've always ridden the Snow Roads as my 300 (as a perm in recent years) and so it will continue, but I see things afoot in this regard.

I plan a first attempt at a 1000k, on the Scottish 1000k event.

I may attempt another couple of things, but I don't want to jinx them yet :-)

Once again I’m trying not to be in “Championship” mode......

Part of me wants to win a seventh consecutive title, and part of me wants to stay home when it’s icy, sleep in when it’s dark, pig out on the sofa in front of a film when it’s blowing a hoolie, and sit drinking coffee / reading a book in the conservatory when it’s raining cats and dogs (which sounds great under all that glass).....

What should I do?
I’ve decided I’m not old. I’m 25 .....plus shipping and handling.
