I'm considering a job in Logan Utah. Anyone know how bike friendly it is? It looks like there is mountain biking there. My current interests tend towards commuting and utility biking.
Summer time is great! The country's longest race starts there, LoToJa, 206 miles in 1 day. Winters suck though, it is Utah afterall!
I would say that Logan is pretty bike friendly. Whenever I go there I always see folks on bikes. Utah State Univ. is there so there are many bike to school commuters. A lot of Logan is rural though so many roads are kind of tight. There is a pretty large bike scene there. Sunrise Cyclery (www.sunrisecyclery.net) is a good bike shop out there that is really helpful and there is a club called the Cache Valley Veloists (www.cvveloists.org) that can get you more info on cycling in the area.
Like raleighrx8 mentioned, they do get a lot of snow.
Logan's a great, small town. The university helps with the atmosphere somewhat, but the valley is still very rural and the dominant culture (Mormon) is very pervasive.
There's a good bike scene there, and besides Lotoja, there's the Little Red Riding Hood (2600 riders) and the local MS 150 bike ride (should be 3000+ riders this year). Lots of sparsely traveled rural roads, very pretty place. While it can be kind of a redneck town, they're mostly friendly rednecks, nice folks.
I can't comment on the water situation but it's the desert, so water's always an issue. Proposals for damming local rivers is a perennial hot topic.
I hope your move works out.
