    Hey LDS Liberal, i came from Portland and grew up in California, so i know what good biking is as well. Moved from Portland to Colorado Springs after ruling Denver out.

    I suggest that you come over to the Rockies and try your hand at commuting anywhere in Colorado ( other than Boulder ). You will be extremely grateful for you what you have up there.

    I am moving to Salt Lake City soon after seeing a bike lane almost everywhere when i visited there. Your trails are actually paved where ours aren't, and if they are, they're decaying pretty badly. You couldn't ask for a more bike-positive mayor in the area.

    I think the SLC metro is underrated for biking and with all the recent improvements, you will see lots of commuters in the future, and more awareness from drivers.

    Having lived in Seattle for 20+ years [Washington State #1],

    Utah is fine fore riding in the desert or mountains so long as there are no other drivers for miles around and can see the landscape without tacky billboards plastered all over the place --
    Utah has long LONG way to go for the safety and pleasure of the urban riders.
