I just read some guy in another thread make the statement that
If you are really into riding MTBs you simply wouldnt live in London.
Now I don't live in London, in fact, living in Norfolk I'm probably considered even further down the MTB pecking order by some. I simply can't understand why where you live can be seen to dictate whether or not you have the right to enjoy something or not?
I'd love to live in southern California, Canada or the Lakes for example, but I've got other things going on in my life as well as cycling. Am I being over sensitive here (because my local hills aren't very gnarly), or is this sort of geographical snobbery a bit silly?
