    Considering a job in Birgingham AL, need a place with riding though

    I'm flying out to Birmingham next week for a job interview. One of the prime items weighing into my consideration to move is the availability of mountain biking. So what is very local to the area, say within 30 minutes? What is it like? What is the level of difficulty? How much climbing is there? Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    What position are you interviewing for?

    Get a loft downtown and you will be within riding distance of JCC trails. All local road rides start from Mountain Brook and Homewood...both very close to downtown. Oak Mountain is in Pelham, where I live ~15 min from B'ham...several good extended climbs. It's a good trail and that's where everybody rides. Trussville has a short trail but doesn't have much elevation. You will be within 3 hours of great riding near the Ocoee too. Huntsville is a couple hours away and they have ~100 miles of connected singletrack. Wetumpka is 1.5 hrs away and there is some nice tight singletrack there.

    Mountain Bike races don't pay attention to what you have on your license. I've seen plenty of sport lever riders race Beginner and I know beginners that race Sport at Bump and Grind. I would be very surprised if the registration asked anything moe than your license number for insurance sake.
