Thank you for subscribing to receive Average Joe Cyclist updates. I am very happy to have you here! In appreciation of your interest in my blog, I would like to share two of my books with you as complimentary downloads. Both are full-color books packed with useful information about choosing and buying the right bike for you. One of my readers said:
“Read even if buying a new bike! … I wish I had a copy of this book a long, long time ago.”
Turbo Bob said about my Electric Bike book: “my goal here is to convince you to read it for yourself. I also fully believe you should get a copy for each person in your life that you care for. When you read the book you will know why. Joe covers the bases here well and you will thank him later when you avoid buying mistakes. Knowledge is power, and he can help you exercise yours.”

About Me and Maggie
While you’re here, I’d also like to introduce myself and my partner, Maggie. My name really is Joe, and I am an average cyclist who writes a blog for average people who love to ride bikes. Most cycling blogs are about people who can bike much better than I can, and who look good in lycra. This blog is for people like me: Average Joes (and Janes) – people who love to bike, but will never win races. People who just want to have fun on bikes, cycle along wonderful bike trails, or discover the many health benefits of becoming a bike commuter.
Guest Posts are Very Welcome on Average Joe Cyclist!
We welcome Guest Posts such as the one about fun places to go on honeymoon – on a bike! We love to post stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things on bikes – such as our friend Al, who quit smoking, took up cycling, lost weight, and then did the 240 km/150 mile Ride to Conquer Cancer! We also write about basic maintenance, such as the easy way to clean a chain.
Mrs. Average Joe Cyclist
My wife, Maggie, contributes to the blog as Mrs. Average Joe Cyclist, focusing on issues she believes are of special interest to women cyclists. She is also thrilled by the fact that both of us have got healthier and lost weight from biking, and so she has written about losing weight by cycling. She also loves to write about the challenges and fun of biking with our dogs.
Average Joe Cyclist Product Reviews
We spend quite a lot of money on bikes and associated products, so we decided to start writing some bike reviews and product reviews. In these, I try to give an unbiased review from the point of view of an ordinary guy who wants value for his money. Maggie does the same in her product reviews.
Our New Electric Bikes Blog
As we have got older, Maggie and I have become fans of electric bikes. We now also write a dedicated Electric Bikes Blog. We are excited about electric bikes because we believe they make cycling possible for everybody, and that’s a wonderful thing! Not only that, but by keeping people mobile as they age, electric bikes offer outstanding health benefits, plus the potential to lose weight in a healthy way. And I’ve published a guide to buying the right electric bike.
Bike Safety Advocates
Finally, Maggie and I have both become advocates for safe cycling infrastructure, as we have had more than a few close calls. We hope this blog will contribute to building a world in which average people who ride bikes can do so more safely, and have more fun doing it.

As someone once said, an entrepreneur is someone who works 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week! Truer words were never spoken. But the difference is of course that I LOVE our blogs – especially Average Joe Cyclist, my first and always my favorite blog.
