I've ridden marin country, moab, porc rim trail, slickrock, durango, but then hundreds of thousands of others, if not millions, have as well.

Both/ all. Not really legendary is it. But good in places.

I am notoriously local in my riding. - The same trails for twenty years and laughed at by my (London) peers as having never biked outside zone 1.

Gotta change that.
