Maggie and I were excited to find our Average Joe Cyclist Blog listed on two top ten lists! We just had to share this, because we feel really proud!
The Cycling Bug (out of the United Kingdom) rates Average Joe Cyclist at no. 5 in their list of 10 Must Read Cycling Blogs, globally:
“5. Average Joe Cyclist
Average Joe Cyclist is into cycling in a big way. His posts range from tips on how to miraculously cure knee pain to the top honeymoon destinations for cyclists. His wife, Mrs Average Joe (of course…) even chimes in to bring a true beginners point of view to cycle commuting.”
My blog came in just ahead of Bike Snob NYC, which was ranked at no. 6!
The I Wear Spandex Blog (out of the USA) lists Average Joe Cyclist’s Cycling Blog at no. 3 of “Six awesome, fantastic, and must-read cycling blogs:”
“3) Average Joe’s Cycling Blog – Joe (yeah, just Joe)
“Joe lives in the Pacific Northwest, on the Canada side. That is some of the most beautiful country that you will find, and it sounds like it’s great for cycling. He writes some great content for the average recreational cyclist. I enjoy his writing style and down to earth approach. Joe is truly an “average Joe” cyclist. Don’t mistake that fun name, he’s a big time cyclist with lots to share.
In the blog post here, his wife writes a story sharing her experiences as a new bike commuter. She started commuting to work on her bike and wanted to share all that goes into being a new commuter. She writes just as well as Joe and really captures all that goes into commuting.”
THANKS Cycling Bug and Brian at I Wear Spandex!
Cycling Bug has some great posts, although you do have to sign up (but it’s easy). At I Wear Spandex, Brian shows you how to lose weight with cycling, like he’s done (so he can now wear Spandex).

Way to go Joe and Maggie – you really deserve this. Especially Maggie, if I may so so, as she has been so brave about starting being a bike commuter while really not quite so young anymore … and kept going even after getting hit by a truck 🙂 🙂 I am her biggest fan! She inspired me to get back on a bike after my back surgery. If she can do it … so can I …

Megan Paul says
Nice to read 🙂 I have been following your blog for years – you deserve it Average joe. BTW, thx for the post on stretches for knee pain preventing, they are really helping me.

Thanks Megan – and I am glad the stretches are helping. I was doing them all weekend, because my knee pain has flared again. Mainly because I fail to follow my own advice and get lazy about stretching.
