    What do you do for a living?

    What industry and department do you work in? Just curious if there are any trends/correlations here between cyclist and jobs...

    I work as a data systems analyst in the electric utilities industry.

    I was medically discharged from the Army after 11 years, now a full time student studying Mechanical Engineering, Machine Tool Technology and Welding Technology. Figured I would have decent options after graduation. Hopefully.

    I'm a chiropractor.
    Self employed so I have to ride a little more cautiously than I'd like at times.

    I'm a bum, live on the government tit. I like to ride bikes though. So, I try to ride 4-5 times a week. Mountain biking for fun, road riding for the Zen.

    I enjoy earning top dollars as a professional procrastinator! Then I make suggestions and advise other procrastinators on how to do their job better and while improving their overall efficiency, all in the name of procrastination. Then I go MTB riding...

    I work too much and don't get paid enough for it.

    Job 1.) Customer Support for VIO inc. Perhaps some of you have used the POV camera's on your rides?
    Job 2.) Laptop Repair Tech/General Tech for Northern Michigan University
    Job 3.) PC Support Technician at 906 technologies
    Job 4.) School

    over 50 hours a week ftw!

    I like what I do and the people I work with, which is really the only things keeping me there, making a living on $8-$9 an hour isn't easy. Not easy to find work either. It ain't easy, but I could be doing worse, like being un-employed. (but sometimes I hear that pays more than being responsible, lol) Maybe if this shitstorm economy works itself out I'll land something that pays more. Time will tell.

    You got it. I work in the Radiation Oncology departments for a couple of hospitals in central MO. Linear accelerators are very cool machines! I really enjoy getting to work on high-end, high-dollar pieces of equipment.

    I'm an Emergency Physician. I went to medical school later in life and was a Structural Engineer before that. I was a Marine Infantryman for seven years back in the early eighties.

    My career cost me everything. Marriage, money, savings...but I can afford to get nice bikes so that's the only silver lining.

    I work nights, ride almost every day.

    Other Things About Me:

    1. I am part of the one percent. Screw it. I worked for it. I didn't major in Womyn's Studies.

    2. I'm looking for a girlfriend. I'd like to find one who rides mountain bikes but since there are no female moutain bikers saying "I'd like to find a girl who rides mountain bikes" is like saying "I'd like to meet Bigfoot and ride a unicorn. And please, do not post those oh-so-obvioulsy photo-shopped pictures of women riding mountain bikes.

    Attorney ... for the times when you realize that riding fast, taking risks, and having to visit this guy as a result wasn't your fault, but rather was the fault of the trail builder, bike mfgr, land owner, etc.

    (just kidding -- I do commercial litigation, not PI work...)

    Incidentially, I'm surprised I'm the first attorney who has chimed in. There are a number of 'us' regularly on RBR.

    Exterminator for 12 years. Still trying to figure out how people get fat doing this job, I usually drop about 15-20 pounds during the season. I spend all day crawling under and climbing on top of houses, drag a hose filled with kill juice and carry extension ladders and backpack sprayers full of juice. Up here we do things very different than the guy you see in a city walking around with a hand sprayer. The houses are huge (because that's all that can afford pest control anymore) and the terrain is often fairly rugged. I also do weed control so you can imagine dragging hose on a 4 acre lawn. Try spending the day in a hot attic in the middle of summer getting rid of bats. We usually do those in early fall but some people want it done NOW and don't want to hear anything about heat exhaustion. 10 to 12 hours a day. I get all the fitness I need from the job, I ride for the fun of it.

    Of course, I usually put on that 15-20 pounds in the winter because I plow snow commercially (not a lot to kill in the winter). Not a lot of physical labor so I need to come up with something to combat that, which is one reason I want to try winter riding this season. It's tough to fit in exercise when you get up at 1 in the morning and plow snow until 2 or 3 the next afternoon and all you want to do is sleep because you know you'll be doing it all over again.

    i work as the shipping and receiving coordinator at a company that builds trade show exhibits, museum displays, office lobbies and retail environments. we also process and mount prints for professional photographers as well.

    general graphics/delphi group builds really cool stuff (like life-size styrofoam redwood tree trunks) for some of our clients and many of the photographs i get to see before and after they're mounted are pretty awesome. the company employs anywhere between 45-60 people at any given time of the year. recently, my company just merged with a smaller exhibit company and we will be moving from san francisco to alameda.

    i've been doing this now for eleven years, enjoy my work and 99.999% of the people i work with.

    during the recent economic downturn the company has been forced to lay me off twice but have always been true to their word and re activated me when business has recovered to the point to where we can have a full staff again. these are the kind of things that inspire loyalty from your employees.

    it's really nice not to work in a corporate environment or be forced to sit at a desk all day long.

    I can't tell if you're really a teacher being very sarcastic or just an idiot that think they knows what a teacher does. Either way, I take offense to this!

    Waaaay too many hours working with too few riding. Growing up sucks.

    Was a tool and die maker before this career.

    Right now at tech school however I'm studying machining and I will be studying mechatronics engineering in university. Hope to have a job where I can engineer and work hands on with machine tools and other production equipment. I love seeing machines producing things.

    Nice thing about going to school in a machine shop is I can make bike parts! Right now I'm machining some flat pedals to use with boots in the snow, instead of buying them.
