About Joe Goodwill

Joe Goodwill (aka Average Joe Cyclist) is a man on a mission - he wants to make cycling fun and accessible for all, from children to seniors, and everyone in between. To achieve that mission, Joe writes a very popular blog called Average Joe Cyclist, which is a blog for average people who love to ride bikes. There are many blogs for and about elite athletes who cycle, and who look great in Lycra. This is not one of those blogs! The Average Joe Cyclist blog includes news, reviews, and helpful cycling tips for average people who want to get more out of cycling. Joe’s wife Maggie also contributes to Average Joe Cyclist, as she also enjoys the exhilaration and health benefits of commuting to work on a bike. Joe and Maggie also write the Electric Bikes Blog. Joe writes guides for cyclists, including How to Buy the Best Electric Bike, and the Bike Buyer’s Guide to help readers to buy used bikes online.
