By no means was it the longest ride of the year, in fact it was one of the shortest.
Scoring a number of PB's on Strava, I climbed (and subsequently had a ball descending) some of the awesome hills around Manly in Sydney.
The Perfect Ride
Following my GPS I darted here there and everywhere on my trusty Pinarello and in doing so met some cool, like-minded riders. There were a few opportunities to practice track-standing, and the challenge of maintaining 40kph for about 5 minutes while barreling along the length of the picturesque seaside esplanade.
To top off 'the prefect ride' I even got paid for it!
"Paid to ride a bike ... " I hear you ask ... "How do you do that?"
With Deliveroo, thats how.
Those who've spent time in the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane (or London, Paris & Brussels for that matter) would have seen cyclists carrying big backpacks, darting around the city streets.
Carrying all manner of edible cargo, Deliveroo bring local restaurants to everyone's home or office.
Other than some great training (particularly on the lengdary hills of Manly), I've met fellow cyclists from all over the world, discovered some great new restaurants for next 'date night', and had a thoroughly good time on the bike. It's still early days but it still hasn't felt a bit like work.
Lets face it, most people need some extra income in this day and age.
Total autonomy - work whenever suits
In my case TeamCar is a relatively new business and I need to be available when guided cycling trips, photo shoots or lodge bookings come in. I need a part-time job where I can log on and off whenever suits - a few hours this week, 20 or more next week - the flexibility and autonomy to always be available for my core business.
With that in mind what better way to earn extra money by teaming with Deliveroo and getting paid to score PRs or KOMs!
If, like me, you are keen on some extra cash, want an extremely flexible part time job, want more time on your bike and want to work with a great organisation, get in touch with Deliveroo today!I know they are looking for new riders in most capital cities as they constantly expand the network.
