Ed is a writer, editor and general bike junkie living in Federal Way, WA. After learning to ride when he was 5, he's since spent over 3 decades simply messing about on bikes. When not answering technical product questions for REI's direct sales team, Ed can be found with wheels underneath him testing and reviewing gear for leading cycling companies. He also writes about people, places and events focused on the riding lifestyle. Ed is currently a contributor at NSMB.com, and his work has also appeared in Bike magazine and other publications.
