Bikes + FL = reason I'm moving to Denver.

Whatever you do, don't start riding trials. Unless you enjoy riding alone.
South of the Orlando latitude, there are maybe 3 riders. 1 rider (me, duh) between Hillsborough (Tampa) and Pinellas Counties.
There are some decent trails though. If you can get up here, Alafia is nice. Boyett and Flatwoods/Morris Bridge are decent starting points if you are newer to MTB. Never been to Carter Road, but I hear its not too tough.

Edit: That pic is from Santos. Never been there either, but I hear Ocala is a good reason to travel. Don't forget about the T.O.E. in lakeland either.

I just rode Alafia on Friday and again on Sunday. Great place for all levels of riders.

Carter Road is a lot of fun, but gets washed out in the rainy season. T.O.E. is membership only and prone to flooding, but they have a jump park from beginner to expert.

Santos is probably Florida's Crown Jewel. IMBA sent a trail crew there and they did a lot of work. Killer trails and on-site camping (limited and first come only - but Ocala Nat'l Forest is close by).

I've never been to Oleta, but I hear it's pretty good. Quiet Waters closer to Palm Beach used to be a great place to ride, but I think one of the Hurricanes destroyed a lot of it and don't know if it ever got rebuilt.
