I'm new to this site...stumbled on it quite accidentally and ride my mountain bike on the road alot since I dont have a road bike yet.

But if I had it my way and trails would stay in decent shape all year I'd ride offroad 24/7/365

Mountain Biking got my vote.

We are tied now.

I do both types of riding and enjoy both equally. Up until this point I had always thought that it was the roadies who had an "us versus them" attitude and thought they were better. I stand corrected.
