Angel Fire New Mexico
- Angel Fire is an amazing place to ride. There are miles and miles of lift accessed downhill with amazing features. Great cross country trails are located all over the mountain. There are green belt trails that offer you glimpses of wildlife while riding. And we mustn't forget the famous "South Boundary Trail" which is a 26 mile trail that runs all the way to Taos!

Eagle, CO: Secret Fruita
- Eagle, CO is the Western Slope's OTHER singletrack destination. Check out: http://www.mountainbikeeagle.com or http://eagleoutside.com/

Cycling Capital of the USA
- Number three on this list should be titled "Brevard, NC" as that is where all the serious Pisgah and DuPont riding are located. There actually is not much to ride in Asheville, and Brevard has everything Asheville has to offer only in a more genuine small town setting.

- Sedona, Arizona doesn't make the top 5? That's okay, keep it secret, it's better that way...
- —Guest Sean

Best Mountain Bike Places in Europe
- I think, the best place to bike is Mallorca! E.g. book over www.roxybike.com
- —Guest Mike
- Riding around Lake Tahoe Rocks. North Shore to the South Shore, West and East Shores too...
- —Guest crazytrain
- My two favorite spots so, after just 3 years of mountain biking, are the Maah Daah Hey Trail in ND and Copper Harbor in the far western end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The MDH in ND is a 100 mile long trail through the Badlands with incredible views, unending hills and countless valleys. Suggested way to do it is by camping at night. Copper Harbor Michigan has over 100 miles of singletrack throught gorgeous northern Michigan country, that simple.

Gooseberry vs. Moab?
- Have you been to Gooseberry? I've not been to Moab, but folks I know who have been to both usually prefer Goose, since there is slickrock along with singletrack of varying types. More variety. Can't compare them personally, though.

Arizona MTB rocks
- This may not be quite on par with the awesome places you've listed, but it's not too far off, either. One of my favorite places ever to ride - Fort McDowell, AZ, outside of Phoenix/ Scottsdale. 15 miles of classic desert singletrack spread out over three loops, and sections for all types of riders, from newbies to experts. You'll find steep drops and climbs, swooping turns, and some technical descents all in the middle of beautifully rugged desert terrain. Ride it once, or a hundred times - it's never the same.
My Favorite Spots
- You have some great ones on there... I would also add Durango, Gooseberry Mesa, and Whistler to the list!

My Top Place
- Lewis Morris Park in Morristown, NJ is my pick! Great for beginners who are looking for the next step in mtn biking... what goes up, must come down.
