Due to some life changes, I'm moving, and might find myself living somewhere other than So Cal on a somewhat temporary basis. Since I can pick where I'm going to live, I'm trying to decide between these three places:
- Salt Lake City
While there are a lot of factors that will ultimately influence my decision of where to live, one of them is the riding. So, that's why I'm here. I'd like to know which region offers the most enjoyable cycling. I ride road and mountain. For road, I like to explore and challenge myself, I like technical and long descents, and just generally being in the mountains/climbing. For mountain, I like technical singletrack and cross country (also singletrack). I don't mind riding in inclement weather and I prefer cold climates.
I also do a lot of other outdoors activities such as, hiking, trail running, and rock climbing. I enjoy living among mountains (I've lived in mountain towns exclusively up to this point), and I'm am good at driving in the snow, so that's not an issue. I'd love to hear from anyone who knows anything about any of these three cities; cycling, social, economy, places to go, things to see, general observations/comparisons, whatever.
