I want to celebrate it in a special way. I have an idea that I think will work but I need some thoughts/opinions from fellow cyclists. I do not want to make my idea public yet for various reasons. If you PM me I will send you my rough outline - there is no rush for your replies

You're not *THE* Mr Hippo are you, perchance?

^ Sorry to be an 'international man of mystery' but I normally keep quiet about my plans until they have started. I would not tell people that I was going for a job interview because when I did then I would not get the job!
Yes, it is cycling related and I've sent you a PM

That's the way I do it.

Done deals are done deals. Not that I do deals though.

Can I have a PM please? My curiosity is growing.

I'm also interested in what you are planning. Grand plans for my 40th did not happen this year hit it with a whimper it still bugs me, still have got a couple of milestones left I hope.

Yep - when I left the services I had 28 days leave to take, and always planned to do something special. Unfortunately I was offered a job - which at the time took priority. It was worthwhile as I am still in the job 11 years later, but still occasionally think "What if......"

Climbing Alp DHuez had been one thing i'd always wanted to do, but I thought had passed me by until a mate suggested doing it to celebrate our 50th 18 months later we climbed the alp at the finish of the Marmotte, superb !
