What are your sportive targets for 2013?

The Spring Onion
Wiggle Ups & Downs
Fools Errand 100
Fred Whitton Challenge (fingers crossed)
Evans 'Ride It' King Of The Downs
Wiggle 'Long One'
Evans 'Ride It' Brighton

What about yours?

Lake land loop - great for early fitness testing.
Etape du dales - After 6 years in row doing the Fred want to try my hand at this one. Done all the climbs though!
Bowland Badass missed this one last year due to family hols and want to give it a go.
One in the Peak District - havent decided yet.
Ride with Brad - fancy this one.
Glen Coe sportive or whatever its called
A few more scottish ones including Ullapool and perhaps a few more northern sportives.

I do a sportive route or mash up of several routes of over 100miles every week on my own if not participating in one.
