Welcome to the Frugal Average Bicyclist!

The internet is full of sites with competitive cyclists talking about all the most expensive new gear, not here.  This is a place for the low budget rider who loves to ride but will probably never be a pro level rider.  This is a place for the riders who do not have a lot to spend or are not allowed to spend too much on cycling and remain married.  All bike types are welcome: road bikes, mountain bikes, recumbent bikes, comfort bikes, hybrid bikes, unicycles….   The goal here is to help you keep cycling on a budget, and we will be throwing in a bit of humor too.
