Buy a house in the Austrian town of F--king. Yes it really does exist.

The rest would be a trip to europe for a year to watch all the big cycling races and to go to all the great cities of Europe.
Ravens idea or strippers is not bad either. I would also start up an Australian cycling team.
OK, 2nd story of the day. This is a true story. My neighbor used to work on wall street as a technician, it was a miserable job, people were ruthless, none of the glamour you read about. They were the little folk that keep the market action happening. Their boss was a flaming ***, and his co-worker was even more miserable. He hated everything and everyone. (In other words, he was your average new yorker.) The only thing that gave him satisfaction was looking at his lottery tix at lunch and swearing what he would do if he ever won.
My neighbor decided to play a trick on him.
he waited til the pot was huge and there was a winner. That night, he bought the same winning numbers for the following drawing and put it amongst the guys' treasured tix. They watched as he sat and looked at his numbers. He checked and re-checked to be sure he had the winner. He got up, went over to the boss and punched him right in the mouth and walked out.

RedheadDane said:Oooh... maybe I'd buy a new bike too... you know; just for the heck of it! Not a racer bike, just a regular commuter one. The one I have works okay (made a few squeky sounds during the winter... don't think it liked the snow)
Then on the other hand; the benefit with having an older bike is that people won't be bothered with stealing it...
Oooh... and I'd buy a flat too...

1. Buy a couple of houses. Not mansions. Just nice houses in nice places. Let my friends and family visit anytime they want.
2. Travel Micronesia and the South Pacific by yacht.
3. Spend a few mil on a film and video production company.
4. Start an animal rescue.
Now, the one everyone here wants to hear:
5. Buy about 10 square miles in a hilly, forested area on the outskirts of the city, put a large paved cycling course on it, and make it to where everyone could ride on it whenever they want. I'd also then help promote a race there every year. I'd also put a small housing project on the edge of it, make sure a high quality bike shop went in, plus a health food cafe, and a covered velodrome as well.
Okay, now I'm broke.
