Parent page: Making Money from Biking
Whether you are a professional biker or you are just getting into biking, you can still make money from the sport. Some of the ways you can use biking to make money include:
Teach people how to bike
There are many people out there who want to ride bikes but they do not know where to start. If you are patient and you feel you have enough skills to teach someone how to ride, you can charge a small fee and guide potential riders on how to go about it. This works best for people who are seasoned in the sport and have experience.
Companies such as restaurants and courier services are always looking for delivery people who can penetrate traffic jams and the hustle in the cities to deliver goods and services quickly. If you are a biker, you can use your hobby to make some extra money by seeking employment as a delivery person.
Operate a bike cab
Other than delivering foods and letters, you can also transport people who urgently need to reach a place; or those who want to go to an area that is not easily accessible by vehicles. You can charge a fee and ensure that you have protective gear for both you and your passenger.
Rent out your bike
If you are a biker who owns several bicycles, you can make some extra money from renting it out to people who are interested in the sport but cannot afford to buy their own bikes.
Enter racing tournaments
Another way of making money is by checking when the next paying racing tournament will be held. Some of them have hefty cash prizes that will make it worth your time and energy. You can also seek brand endorsements if you are an exceptionally good biker.
