    Winston-Salem Relocation

    Hey all, I am looking at relocation to Winston-Salem for work...I have seen a few postings about MTB trails... Can anyone recommend some parts of town to live in and parts NOT to live in? Also, does anyone commute to work by bike? What's the area like, etc??

    We've been here for almost 14 years now. Stay away from the east side of town for the most part and you should be OK. We have a couple local trails - Hobby Park and Tanglewood - with Greensboro within 30 minutes, Wilkesboro with Dark Mountain, OVT, and Warrior Creek within about an hour, Rocky Knob and Wilson's Creek in Boone within 1.5 hours, and Pisgah within 2 to 2.5 hours.

    I will say this - the job market here is not great. It is actually one of the worst in the state, BUT if you already have a job the cost of living is pretty good.

    Also got to throw a plug out for my LBS - Cycletherapy. Mike is good people.

    Good stuff, thanks

    I would be working at Forsyth Medical Center...the area to live in is a few miles straight west.

    Are there a lot of bike work commuters?

    I don't know if I would say a lot, but I don't work downtown. I will say that we are putting a lot of bike lanes and greenways in to make it much easier to get around by bike.

    There are a lot of rental properties around if you are looking for a house/room rather than an apartment. Ardmore is an area that is very close to FMC.
