Joshua Hutchens

Review Editor


Joshua prefers pedals to bi-pedals. Rolling on two wheels long before his first memory of life, he grew up on a BMX bike and took his first bike shop job at the age of 12. He's held most every position in the bike industry trying to impart his love of two wheels to others. Bikes have taken him around the world as a guide, to the podium as a racer, to countless mountain tops and a few emergency rooms. Now living in South Lake Tahoe with his wife Hillary and daughter Penny, Joshua can often be found on the amazing trails and beaches around the lake. Rarely seen on the same bike, he rarely sheds that silly grin.
