$65,000 in bicycles: Lotto winner is one of us

Fortune | How a lottery winner spends his multi-million-dollar jackpot - Feb. 21, 2007

Fortune has a story about Brad Duke, a Gold’s Gym manager from Idaho who won a $220 million Powerball jackpot in 2005.

He retired his student loans and his mortgage, but you’ve got to treat yourself a little when you pick up a check for $85 million. His treat? A trip to Tahiti with 17 friends ($63,000 worth) and new bikes to the tune of $65,000, including a $12,000 BMC.

He’s still teaching his spinning class twice a week, too.
