I was wondering if anyone knows any job or if you could advise as of what I could do to obtain a new job that involves bicycles?

    Perhaps... a bike shop?

    Would you please clarify the nature of job that involves bikes? Is it being a bike salesman, repairman/mechanic, bike fit tech, design lighter and stronger bike frames, inventor of new bike gearing system, or the sorts?

The "dirt" magazine (137/july 2013) has a small article on that. Possible jobs listed are:

  • working in a bike shop
  • pro rider
  • writer (in mags, web)
  • photographer
  • guide (riding instructor)
  • industry related (designer, marketing)

So, you'd need to find out which of the above you are best at and start contacting people, sending cvs etc.

  • Advocacy, policy, and planning are going to be big areas of real jobs in the coming years!

  • Don't forget engineering and manufacturing! R&D is important so if you have an interest in science maybe you'll come up with the next carbon fiber manufacturing process!

In addition to the list @cherouvim posted, you could also get a job as a bike messenger if you live in a large enough city and are exceptionally crazy.

  • Is that crazy as in insane, or crazy as in "crazy about bikes"?

    From the one person I knew that did it, both.
