    quit my job to ride.

    i've been working at a restaurant for almost a year. I make 8.50 an hour and would work at the restaurant until early to mid august (roughly another month). I hate working their. I just picked up my raleigh supercourse, that I havn't riden in 5 months, and rode 100 miles in the past 8 days. I feel so amazing on the bike. I actually lied to get out of work the last two days and rode 30 and 35 respectively. after the 35 today, I barely felt tired, i want to ride more. Im going to college this fall and I already have some money. If i quit for the next month, I'd be giving up roughly 1250$. Man i want to ride my bike.

    I quit a job at a bike shop so I could ride. Working on the damn things all day just made it more frustrating to not have the time to ride.

    I got a job riding , best of both worlds most of the time, OTOH things change when you HAVE to ride, it isnt the same anymore

    i want to loose about 13-15 lbs for college anyway. I've worked at this place for a year and they gave me a raise of a dollar about 8 months ago and thats it. Beats being broke though. I'd probably get bored anyway once the world cup is over. Say at max I ride 3 hrs a day on average, I can possibly sleep 10hrs and parties on fri, sat, sun if im lucky. Otherwise...

    Here is a suggestion. You are going to work there for 4 more weeks? How about you compromise and make it two for roughly $650. Life is to short to put a price on it. Put in your two weeks notice and go ride your bike.
