    Northern California doesn't have the traffic ( except bay area). I live half way between the ocean and Tahoe ( auburn area), good jobs in sacramento and lots of good riding close by.

    Love SoCal, all year riding. I live in east side of LA, traffic is way better than westside, and the trails are closer too, and so many good food from all over the world.
    Food wise, I think CA is the best.

    I couldn't agree with the OP more. In fact, please post a PSA wherever possible letting the CA folks in CO know they need to move back ASAP. ASAP!

    Born and raised here in San Francisco. Love the diversity of the city. A true melting pot of cultures.

    I love just where I'm at, thank you (Central Oregon).

    But I'd choose NoCal over SoCal any day, given the choice!

    Your experience with CO is way limited, you barely scratched the surface. Try central and southern CO and get back to me.

    Wrong, the Utah housing market can be quite affordable. Of course it depends on where you're looking. I'm talking SLC.

    So Cal is a pretty big place. I'm not a fan of the mountian bike riding with in 45 minutes of me (Thousand Oaks). Too many fire roads and not enough sweet single track. But we do have great road bike riding and the weather lets me ride year round pretty much.

    Saying the front range is boring cause you rode Lair of the bear or in Boulder is pretty Fing stupid. I have a friend that lives in the Pasadena area and I have been out there twice in the last 3 years to ride, great riding in the San Gab's but not enough singletrack! We rode up in Mammoth which is nice but I can drive 2 hrs and have 3 diff resorts to chose from and all of them are just as nice. We also went down to Noble canyon and camped and rode there, excellent riding!, as well as a day in the Santa Barbara area. Still need to get up to Tahoe and Downieville which were planning for next time I head out there hopefully.

    I have been all over CO- GJ/Fruita, high country stuff and resorts, diff front range locales, not to mention Moab. To me Socal does not compare to the riding here, except for the excellent weather and year round riding. But it's an apples to oranges comparison, I prefer big mtns and trees over coastal desert mtns. I'm sure the riding in the Sierra's up north kicks a$$ and overall CA has a lot to offer but living here in the Springs is really nice as far as the riding and quality of life.

    I have lived in norcal, socal, Denver. I have enjoyed mtbing in each. I think the Front range has missed it (Boulder) in particular has missed the boat about what has been going on in the rest of the country. They are about 10 years behind in their thinking about mountain bikes using the trails.

    All that said, I don't know if there is a better state than Arizona for Mountain Biking. The amount and variety is outstanding. The amount being created each year is just stunning.

    It's good to love where you live!!!

    You're right, they should get IMBA involved. Oh wait.

    I live in the NW of the Australian Capital Territory. Over the last decade I've enjoyed the growth of MTB trails in the region. This has been a real plus.

    I'm not the slightest bit impressed with the way our Nation's Capital City has recently besmudged the landscape. I live on the fringe of the Capital and only twice in the last ten years have I (even) bothered to ride into town. The developers and two-bit politicians are ruining this once wonderfully planned city. Planned by the genius of Walter Burley Griffin ... but I do love the thirteen wilderness regions that surround the Territory. That's where I like to ride.

    I do love where I live ... but out on the fringe of the now f-ugly plastic Capital.

    Nice to hear bad planning isn't just an American problem.

    Lots of good terrain in CA, but population density has taken a lot of the joy out of it. Whenever I go back it just seems like you are "squeezed out", as houses and development has happened in every possible place. It's going to be one big city from San Francisco up to Tahoe soon. Many of the previous rural areas have just gone nuts, and if you could travel around unimpeded it would be one thing, but lots of places just keep getting worse and worse. There are still some great places to live in CA, but it's hard for me to really have passion about it anymore.

    How about we take back all the former Californians when all the non natives leave our state? Both states will come out way ahead.
