    Best mountain bike colleges

    There is an article in the recent Mountain Bike Action on America's top 10 colleges for mountain bikers, NC schools got 4 slots out of the 10: Lees-McRae, Brevard College, Warren Wilson, and Mars Hill. Pretty cool.

    I still talk to friends that picked their College based on the best skiing. The conversation usually involves "Yeah, go ahead and super-size those fries"...

    Or you could just go to Appalachian State and ride great trails AND be at a real school.

    Kind of odd they put 4 schools on that list that are basically in the same area. You'd be riding many of the same trails if you went to any of those four.

    Probably because they have programs with coaches and teams and scholarships and stuff...and you can get a good education. IMO, college is usually what the student makes of it not what college makes of the student. YMMV.

    With the addition of Rocky Knob, ASU has certainlly bumped up in terms of a good college for mtn bikers. When I went to school there, no legal riding anywhere close and you had to drive down OFF the mountain to ride. ASU students worked hard as volunteers to help out at Rocky Knob, something the other 4 NC top 10 schools can not claim (as far as I know, none of them really do any volunteer trail work which is sad).
