    3 pages and I'm the first guy who rides bikes for a living?! I'm surprised, guess all the rest are out riding. It isn't much of a living but I get to ride my bike every day and meet cool people. It suits me.

    Haha well I'm guessing that I am the only farmer/rancher on a bike!? Self employed and we run about 13,000 acres of wheat, hay, safflower. And about 750 head of cattle. I haven't heard of any farmers out there shredding the mountains haha... I love what i do! I'm outside all day, everyday, and away from everybody! haha. There's isn't a better job than working the ground to grow food!

    Sales VP with the largest data storage/virtualization/backup/security company in the world. Yes, it is all one company. I travel a lot for works which sucks, but I have singletrack 30 seconds from my garage when I get home.

    My side gig is 5 kids (7 weeks, 10,11,12,13) and a wife who lets me ride whenever I want. My life is very, very good.

    As for me, I'm a nurse on a Cardiology floor... reminds me how fortunate I am to have a sport I love more than anything that also keeps me healthy. Amazing how many 40 and 50 year olds are having angios done, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Oh, and I only have to work 3 days a week...

    This is no joke. I'm 47. I regularly see 45-year-old guys in extreme distress from congestive heart failure or else laying uncomfortably with their bulk stuffed into our too-narrow stretchers waiting to be treated for complications of their many medical problems.

    CPA, CIA, CGAP & Masters in Accountancy - no more school, no more tests, I can just go and ride after work. And no I don't want to do your taxes.

    I do internal audits for a hospital - which is actually a pretty cush job (who am I kidding I probably got one more test left in me)

Other then checking emails and updating the occasional database I'm outdoors a good amount of my time with access to a lot of beautiful places that not a lot of people go to. Just last month I got to take a group of teens mtbing and geocaching. Was great showing them how to get down steep, rutted trails without going over the bars and get over logs. Most of them had never ridden a bike on dirt at all.

    Agreed. Working with our patients gives me great incentive to stay active and keep the pounds off. It is a crying shame what some people do to their bodies.

    I can't wait until I graduate from college and start my own bike shop. Where is there a need for a new bike shop?

    I deliver pizzas, which I actually really enjoy. Its not all that hard and I make pretty decent money. I was previously a bike mechanic/salesperson, I just don't like bike shop vibes... I am also a full time student. Living at home (and being 19) with no real expenses is nice seeing as I can put the majority of my money towards mtbing. Though working 30+ hours a week and going to school full time doesn't leave much time for riding. That is what night riding is for, who needs sleep?

    I work as a ER tech where we specialize in cardiology. We have an attached CPC (Chest Pain Center) for those who fall under certain criteria.

    And as the national average dictates, we send 10% to 20% of those who are in our CPC up to the cath. lab when lab results come back elevated.



    Three 12HR shifts a week for me too!

    Teachin' 13-18 year olds how to do math....it's an ugly job, but someone's gotta do it, plus summers off really is a great gig. I hate the 9 months between summers where I only get to ride 3-4 times per week!
    I also run an mtb website in my "spare" time...see sig
    My garage is a revolving door of bikes, wheelsets, & frames

    Iím sort of the live-in domestic bitch, as my wife has a successful career in biotech, and I have just recently been re-inserted into the working world after a 2-year involuntary hiatus from employment in the high-tech sector, which is piece by piece being offshored to India by rich J-hole CEOs raking in the millions while the local unemployment rate continues to rise.

    When work actually comes my way, I do web development/design/standardsista-awareness/production along with cautioning others to stay away from insecure systems such as Windows, and also am an active advocate against the use of Comic Sans and Verdana. Otherwise, I just sort of exist with the idea in my mind of when my next mountain bike ride will happen, and I calculate every living breathing moment of my time planning said anticipated mountain bike rides.
