A Word from Jordan Villella

As a writer for BikeRumor and Lola Digital Media, I share my passion for cycling with the world and hopefully get some new riders excited about hitting the trails.

My writing career started by reviewing products. As a bike racer, I would go through lots of gear in my heavy training seasons. I used that time to put products through the wringer and share my results.

I like hiking with my kids, playing the drums, health/wellness, and attending loud heavy metal concerts.
