I may be in the job market shortly, and I can move just about anywhere in the US I want.

What is considered the best biking city in the US, based on number of bike friendly roads, weather, scenic rides, etc?

Just wondering.

Thanks

Year round riding and bike clubs everywhere. Ride near the ocean, ride in the canyons, ride in the mountains...it's all available.

Of course, I might be biased....I just got in from my Tuesday/Thursday morning ride, with about 75 cyclists. Down the beach, around Marina del Rey, and back.

I live in Hillsborough County (Tampa, FL). The riding in Central and Northern Florida has been bike friendly at least for me. We do not have mountains, however we do have hills and enough warm weather to make up the difference. We ride year around - not many places have this luxury.
If you have viewed my posts you know it is DC. nmMB1

If bicycle riding was the OSCAR'S, DC wouldn't win best movie but MB1 would definitely win best rider.

Awesome posts, they're my favorite part of Monday.
Thanks. nmMB1

I would vote for the San Francisco Bay Area (biased here as well), but you have incredibly varied terrain, much like the LA area, mountains, flats, water, etc. Not quite as warm as down south, but arguably less crowded... ;-)
