Senior Review Editor


Jeremy Benson is the Senior Mountain Bike Review Editor at OutdoorGearLab. Jeremy has lived in North Lake Tahoe for 18 years and currently resides in Truckee, CA. A New England native, Benson earned his Bachelor's degree at Saint Michael's College in northern Vermont where he became obsessed with both skiing and mountain biking. He is an obsessive mountain biker and racer with a mild addiction to Strava and self-inflicted pain. He enjoys long climbs to reap the gravity-fueled reward of the descents and is especially tough on and critical of mountain biking gear. In the winter months, he can be found backcountry skiing throughout the mountains of the great state of California on two planks or driving down to lower elevations to shred dirt on two wheels. Jeremy is the author two books, Mountain Bike Tahoe and Backcountry Ski and Snowboard Routes: California, both published by Mountaineers Books in 2017.
