If you're reading this, the odds are very good that you're not a professional cyclist, but that doesn't have to stop you from getting paid to ride you bike. Strava and Competitive Cyclist have teamed up to reward riders with store credit, just for spending time in the saddle.

"At some point we all dream of being a pro and getting paid to ride," said Noah Singer, senior product manager at Competitive Cyclist. "This is as close as most folks will get, and winning isn't even a requirement. It's pretty simple, earn $1[USD] per hour you ride and use it towards the things you need to keep going. We want to make your next ride your best ride."

How it works

In order to use this new play-to-pay program, riders must sync Strava with a Competitive Cyclist account.

You earn one credit, the equivalent of one US dollar, for every hour you spend riding (time is measured in moving time.) Credits are deposited into the rider's Competitive Cyclist account within 24 hours. Accumulated credits are automatically applied to your next order.
