I am road cycling enthusiast who works as a software developer. I am looking for a new job. I may be offered one in the Redmond area, which I would need to decide on without ever having visiting the area. May sound strange, but that is the nature of this business -- job interviews and offers (one hopes) over the phone.
So, my question is, is this a good place to work/live for someone with a strong interest in cycling and other outdoor activities like xc skiing, hiking and kayaking? And, where would I look for living space in this area? I currently live in the Northeast, and could use an adventure, hence my interest in taking a job in another area. This would be a 1 year contract, so I would not be committed beyond that, which makes taking the chance easier.
What do you think? Your opinions are most welcome!
