United States of America

America is one of our favorite MTB holiday destinations

For the following reasons

1) The Mountain bike trails are fantastic, Long Singletrack trails abound in the states

2) The countries so huge whatever time of year you want to visit somewhere will have good weather conditions.

3) America is very geared up for outdoor activities, and the trail systems are very well marked out and developed, so with the right guide books and maps its easy to have a great active vacation.

4) Its a very easy location to visit as they all speak English, and usually everyone you meet is very friendly and helpful.

5) Hotels are easy to find and very good value for money, for the same price you'd pay for a grubby B&B in England you'll stay in Luxury in the States.

6) Food is usually much cheaper and better quality than in England.

7) Hire cars are cheap to rent we usually rent a 4x4 and 3 weeks rental for one of them in the USA costs less than one weeks rental of a small car in Italy.

NOTE : I've not had time yet to complete my write up of the Colorado 2003 Holiday - the pictures are there but not the words for some of the days.
