I've got one more day of my sophomore year left till I'm a junya. Junior year is when I actually have to start thinking seriously about where I wanna go to school since I'll be applying the summer after that year. I was wondering if there are any notoriously good or bad colleges for riding as far as the BMX scene goes. I'm from a place with no riding scene whatsoever, so I'm really excited to go to school where I'll be able to meet guys who love BMX like I do. I'd love I go to a good college that's located in an area that ha street and park spots and more importantly, a fair amount of riders. I've considered UCF since its in-state, but it's not a particularly good school. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I think you're referring to Ohio State and not Oklahoma or Oregon haha. Assuming you are, I've heard a little about the Columbus scene and it seems cool from what I've heard.

Where i live is in a small college town called Bethany, WV. There is a pretty decent riding community here, we have all the ledges waxed, plenty of stairs and gaps, not too far from Pittsburgh if you wanna ride trails or park, and there are a bunch of kids that ride with me. If they all stick with it, there will be one crazy BMX scene here within the coming years, its actually always had kids in town that rode BMX, so it's really just how it is i guess.

They're isn't much to ride in Florida period, UCF definitely has some of the best street spots around though, I've ridden there a few times with small amounts of harassment from anyone. It's within riding distance to Oviedo skatepark which just recently started allowing bikes in, decent concrete park with decent amount of flow and a street plaza section. As far as the scene goes, it's pretty big and it's growing and alot of people working to make it bigger, but definitely alot of fun people to ride and chill with.
