Bucket List Rides, V2.0

We were watching a commercial with a 4WD vehicle prominently displayed, when the graphic "Pikes Peak" flashed and picturesque shots of the vehicle going up the hairpins followed.  In my normal not-so-subtle way, I blurted out "I've ridden there!"
My wife pointed out that with Covid-19 killing our vacation to France, what non-France rides did I want to do since this was (in Pink Floyd terms) a year that has got behind us before we even had a chance to get ahead of it.
I started to do some more listing, and then found I had already had written one in 2015.  I feel it's time to update it:
