Your job outside of cycling...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Your job outside of cycling...

I'm sure we all wish we could get paid to be on our bikes (maybe some of us do, not me though, sadly)... but I'm wondering what you guys/gals do to pay the bills/buy new bikes/pay race-entry fees and so on in your normal lives...
Personally I am in Market Research in NYC... so I have a lot of time to sit on the computer and surf this forum!!

what does everyone else do?

Me too! Thankfully, I'm the one responsible for monitoring internet traffic for our company.

I'm the Controller for a start-up media distribution company. I'm also a CPA and occassionally teach real estate tax classes for r.e. agents and brokers. I also spend an inordinate amount of time staring out of my office window wishing I was outside riding my bike.
