Josh Vigh (‘J-Bird’) is a route ambassador for the Southwest region, where he develops, documents, writes, and tests routes.

When not riding, Josh is the Arizona Sales Manager for an engineering and third-party inspection firm called Ei Companies based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. It serves the residential construction industry, both single-family production home builders and multifamily developers. He has a passion for sustainability and making the world a better place for our children and future generations.

Josh began mountain biking in December 2018 and fell in love with riding. He got into gravel after his friend from Michigan, an avid gravel rider, encouraged him to give it a shot. He completed the Mt. Lemmon Gravel Grinder shortly after purchasing his first gravel bike in July 2019. He had no idea what he was getting himself into but has been hooked ever since! He splits his riding time evenly between mountain and gravel. He loves pushing himself to the brink of physical capability and mental capacity, as well as exploring new areas in the best way possible! You’ll find him on his custom 2020 Salsa Warbird.
