Careers Cyclists Should Consider

When it comes to finding the perfect job or career, we are often told to find our passion if we want to be as happy and fulfilled in the workplace as we can possibly be.

If you’re a dedicated cyclist, finding your passion is pretty simple, so let’s take a look at some of the best cycling-based careers you might want to consider.

Cycling tour guide

Cyclists love to cycle as much as they can, and that includes when they are on vacation, so if you live in a tourist trap, or you’re willing to relocate to one, setting yourself up as a bicycle tour guide who shows people around the local attractions by bike, is a great way to spend more time cycling, while also making a living and exploring the scenery around you. The best part is, you don’t need any qualifications – just a bike and some insurance, and a first aid qualification would be useful too.

A stretch therapist

Okay, so this is not strictly cycling-based, but as a cyclist, you will know more than most, just how important stretching is. When you stretch properly, you improve your balance, flexibility, and cycling performance significantly. By training for your facilitated stretch therapy certification, you can set yourself up as a stretch therapist and help other cyclists to reach their full potential, all the while, ensuring that you are in perfect physical condition too.

Spin instructor

Spin classes are really popular right now, so if you’re looking for a new career that will enable you to do a lot of pedaling and stay as fit as possible, training to teach your own spin classes could be a smart move.

Bicycle store owner

If you’re a passionate cyclist, chances are you know all there is to know about bicycles, which means you could do very well out of opening up your own bicycle store where you sell bikes, customize cycles and fix broken machines for other cyclists. If you live and breathe bikes, this will be a dream come true.

Cycling coach

If you are good at getting people motivated and you know what it takes to become a better cyclist, starting your own cycling coaching business could be a great way to make money by doing what you love. You’ll get to spend lots of time out on your bike as you help other cyclists achieve their full potential and you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in other athletes’ lives.


If you have a way with words and a passion for cycling, why not combine the two by writing about cycling for blogs, magazines, and newspapers? It’s a great way to spend more time in the cycling world learning more about everything from cycling techniques to the latest e-bike technologies, and if you’re good at it, it could be quite lucrative too.

You really can turn your passion for cycling into a fulfilling career, so what are you waiting for?

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
