What's your real job?

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

What's your real job?

The pic post thread made me curious about what we all do for money in the real world...


I work part time for a university doing research in early childhood environments and some personal training on the side as well. Then seem to squeeze in some mommy time too.

Mscycler is a project / purchasing manager for a structural steel company(they have 4 day work weeks) and on Fridays and a few Saturdays he works at Lowes(supporting his bike habit). Yes... he is ADHD and needs to be constantly doing something...
