    A pretty good list

    I'd add build or help maintain a trail to this list.

    I've easily got 9 of 10 and maybe 10 of 10 but I'll have to check. Many of mine came on my Garmin TransPortugal ride this spring.

    I am missing the foreign country and technical the riding to the sea, but if I wanted to do that, I could clip in and ride 3 miles due east

    And my crossing a mt range is iffy. I rode to the top of a pass in Colorado, but did not go all the way to the other side.

    So I would be somewhere in the 8 out of 10 range. Not bad for a flatlander.

    I saw that on FB - and yep, no trail work? My friend who posted it said that was the #1 pink bike complaint too.
    There don't appear to be any women in the vid either but I suppose that is a different discussion.

    Love the video, though indeed it would have been better with a female presence - and trail building as well, but as Irulan noted that is a different discussion. While my mountain bike career was short due to permanent injury, I AM pleased to note that I actually accomplished two things on the list. I've slept by my bike a couple of times, and I DID explore a new trail (to me). That last one is a stretch but for me it counts

    the lack women in the video is a different discussion, but not the trail building aspect. Considering that less than 5% of the mountain biking community ever participates in trail building, maintenance or advocacy, it IS a really big deal to leave it off the list of "things every mountain biker should do".
