THERE WAS AN ARTICLE THAT CLAIMED the best trail is the one you ride the most because it has the most memories. I think that's mostly true...
... but, where is the best city?
For mountain biking, I still really love Park City, UT.
Today, for instance, we rode from town.
70% of the single track we rode
had been put in during
the last 2 summers.
This town is committed.
The thing I like about the riding up here is the lush vegetation and the many areas of dark, moist hero dirt.
Deer Valley is pioneered it all 20+ years ago,
The other resorts have all since joined,
running lifts all summer long.
For road, I'd have to say the best road riding I ever did was in France.
Long beautiful climbs, with recognizable names
and polite drivers.
For gravel, I have no idea yet.
But, in my dreams there are endless roads with no cars
connected by smooth, flowy single track,
with tall, giant trees,
and little dust.
If you've got a favorite, let us all know.
