As much as I love the Chilterns for on your door step riding & with only limited experience of mountain biking round the UK, I think i would opt for the FoD for much the same reasons as theredchili.

Hawaii. O'ahu to be more specific. Lots of possibilities there. Mountains, beaches, trails trough the forests, etc etc. And the weather is nicer too.

Well, much as I like the riding that I have around here (the Isle of Man) I think that for trails to fit the "awesome" description you have to have mountains, and half decent ones at that. Places where you could easily get lost, die and never be found....
So in Britain that only really leaves you with the Scottish Highlands.

I have proper mountains in Greece too (well, up to 2,400 metres) - my wife hates me going up into them on my own, as I can be gone all day and there's usually no phone coverage.

Having just got back from the lakes, it would have to be the lakes for me.

Probably a good choice, if this is anything to go by.
