Where do you live in the US, and what’s your road and mountain biking like there? How accessible and high quality is it?
I’m looking where to live after graduating college with an engineering degree, so most cities are game as far as where I can get a job. I enjoy mountain biking and road biking equally, but I know it’s hard to find good areas where both are viable. Right now I live in the Madison, WI area, which has excellent road biking in the driftless area, but the mountain biking is lackluster. Quality of life factors are also important, but I think there’s a correlation between good outdoor recreation and general quality of life
Cities on the list so far: Boulder, Denver area, CO Springs, Boise, Seattle, Portland, SF Bay area
