Just read a thread where the poster called someone a "Fred". Fairly new to this sport so thought I would ask what that term means. I'm quite sure it is NOT a flattering term just curious as to the meaning.

Thanks,

Hazy

back home being a Fred or a Doris is to me almost a compliment... meaning you ride for the love of riding and have not necessarily bought into having to have the fanciest race bikes and gear. when i was little the big riders would sweep through our town throwing used water bottles and nutrition bar wrappers out as they spun up the road. then a group of local "Freds" would set out on there bikes an pedal along picking up the trash.

in the US i believe it is not such a good thing...

Being a Fred myself, I don't particularly find it insulting and if you KNOW you are a Fred and embrace it, no one really much cares. Most Fred's that can do that are good people and can be a real delight to be around.

The Fred's that are REALLY ANNOYING are the Fred's that don't know they are Fred's.
