The past couple days have added a unique experience to my cycling credentials. I just finished up a two-day gig with Team Cycad, for a client-specific event in downtown San Francisco.
Considering my current professional life of freelance media and PR-related jobs, combined with my ongoing desire to be outdoors and physically active, this was a win-win situation for the most part. Twelve hours of pedaling certainly yielded a few advantages, not the least of which is the decent amount of cash now in my pocket.
I spent these last two days cycling, while getting paid to do so! All in all, this is a pretty damn good deal, if I say so myself. Granted, the particular route for this client was rather slow-paced, with a lot of typical city stop-and-go. While some calories were no doubt burned, the loops became rather dull by the ends of the day. Still, the overall experience was worth the time, exercise and money.
If you’re interested in such an opportunity for yourself, check out Team Cycad and ask if there’s anything going on in your city. This happens to have been the company’s very first event in San Francisco, but I’m told there could be more before too long. As such, cycling for pay could come again!
