Where Would You Live?

So if you could live anywhere in the world where would it be. Lets just say money doesn't matter, and you have no obligations(work, family,etc.)
So I will go first,
I would live in Lakewood CO. Why because it is close to good front range trails with access to big mountain within an hour. There are also plenty of good bike parks on/near I-70. It is also within an hour or so of an International airport if I wish to travel elsewhere. Also in the winter you can drive to Fruita/Moab and have endless riding there. If thats not enough riding for you an hour south you have Colorado Springs and a hour north you have Fort Collins. It seems like everything is within a hour.

That's an excellent question. I'm thinking about it... Can I have a time machine?

Sure on the time machine but can I ask why?

I'm thinking about Santa Cruz back before it got so crowded and blown out. But then the bikes wouldn't be as good.

Just bring your bike with in the time machine.

I'll just stay in the Northwest. It's perfect up here.

Sign me up for New Zealand. So good.

hmmm. Somewhere in BC or New Zealand... I´m thinking New Zealand actually as it´s a bit more diverse down there, and I would have better opportunities to surf than in Whistler for example.

For me it´s actually not the money that´s holding me back, more my family as they would be pretty far away.

I made the move to Queenstown (from Belgium) a little over a year ago.
If there is one piece of advice that I could give you, it's don't be picky. Of you're willing to work a crappy job and live in less than ideal shared houses, you'll be sweet.
The truth is, there aren't a whole lot of good jobs, and if you have qualifications, chances are you won't find a job where you can use them.
Other than that, it's a awesome as it seems on picture/video.

I just came back from a holiday in Queenstown, didnt do any riding but looked into it.
There is several shops that do bike hire and gear, shuttle trips etc.
There is the Gondala you can take to the top and ride down. Queenstown bike park.
Jump on facebook and get on to the queenstown MTB groups, guys organising rides all the time

When your there search bookme.co.nz for discount bike hire.
I know ATLAS shop was $49nz for half day and $88 full day hire of a Mondrake prayer and gear on bookme.

Lift pass was like $60 for am session and $70 for pm session or a all day pass was available.

Shops I seen were: Torpedo7, ATLAS (mondrake), Vertigo (giant), Outside sports (specialized), all similar costs.

Since we're all dreaming a bit here I'm going for two places. Squamish for the summer - pedal to the trailhead, close to Vancouver, close to Whistler, close to tons of other stuff I have yet to ride. Santa Cruz for the rest of the year - great trails, good food, close to everything you need.

"...now I hate a man that blows!" (Mulga Bill)....but...that has been my life for the last 6 years, 5 months every summer in Whistler, and then back home to Cairns for the summer. Now Cairns was host to the world cup in 2014 and again this year, there are so many really good downhill tracks within 30 mins of the city, and then awesome trail riding too, and then Atherton bike park is only just over an hour away, with really well built and well draining trails. The draining part is something we need here with 3 meters of annual rainfall all in summer. But then Squamish, now there is a place that you really need a long travel trail bike!
