    It's about 100km south of Brisbane, immediately on the north side of the New South Wales border. I might be moving to Brisbane soon.

    I hang out everywhere (well, perhaps not winter cycling as I haven't quite grasped the concept of 'winter' just yet). There are some very nice trails in the vicinity of Murwillumbah (south of here - Murwillumbah, the economic, political, cultural and social hub of the known universe)

    ...you should take a trip someday just for the winter riding. Its an experience unto itself...

    although I would take a beautiful sunny summer day anyday.

    I too hail from the Seattle area...

    young_biker, I'll have to put my recommendation in for the Tiger Mtn. area. It's fairly close and offers a lot of different types of riding. You also might like Tolt-MacDonald in Carnation. And of course one of the neatest places to go riding although it's a bit further out is Kachess Ridge. There's some nice riding across the sound too (Mt. Muller is a killer ride) and then there are the trails around Mt. Constitution on Orcas Island. I myself live right next to some nice trails (The Beaver Lake Trail System). They're not incredibly hard or challenging or anything and really just loop and twist around in the forest but they're literally outside my door so if I just want a quick ride to satisfy my craving, I only have to roll out of the garage and the trailhead is right there.

    Sarasota, FL where we only have two seasons; Summer and Construction!

    Lived here for the last 22 years. WOW! Well, except for the period of time I went to college at the UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA (GO GATORS!!). Lived in other places in FL for 7 years before moving to Sarasota.

    Mtn biking here is scarce! We have to drive over an hour to get to anything decent! Over 2 to get to the good stuff! 10 hours to get to some actual mountains!
