    Are you looking to be away for your actual birthday? If so, when is it?

    In any event, as it's a big one, I'd heartily recommend treating yourself to a cycling tour in Northern Thailand; some of the best cycling in the world around Chiang Mai.
  • Why not tackle 40 European cols?
    It's an uphill climb to the bottom
  • La Sufrida in Ronda, 31st May next year, if you want a one day challenge, this involves 195km and nearly 5000m of ascent. Or El Limite, normally early July, Saturday 90km with 3000m odd ascent, taking in Puerto de Monachil and Guejar Sierra as seen in La Vuelta this year, and Sunday, a 40km climb up Pico Veleta the highest road in Europe to over 3000m above sea level.

    Just a couple of ideas
