iv just started riding and im 13 any1 got any ideas on how i can get some cash t
But you could find the tenner a month (I assume that’s what you said anyway) and get a paper round as well, double your money!
You want money, you need to work for it. Failing that do you know any local slappers, knock one up and the tabloids will pay you well when you sell your story.Posted 9 years agoLanesra

He’s entitled to what he wants. We’re all entitled to what we want. We’re entitled to it now. So give it him. You, yes you over there give him what he wants. Better still, give him what he deserves. Don’t you know there are laws against child labour? Anyone under 30 is not allowed to work. Anyone over 30 is too old to work.Posted 9 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
I did a paper round monday to friday, milk round on saturday, sunday papers double round. Then when I was 14 I got a weekend job rigging boats at the local sailing school (12 mile ride each way to get there), and in the winter did things like turkey gutting and plucking, beech nut harvesting(!), washing cars etc etc. By 16 i worked full time during hols at the sailing place, by then an instructor, and persuaded them to give me time and some cheap / free bits.
It paid for loads of sailing kit – probably as expensive as an MTB habit….Posted 9 years agomentalalexMember
hey I’m only 14 and I have two bikes only been riding a year and a half.
started of on a shock wave then slowly saved my money up and bought another one and so on.
if you really want to get a good bike then work your ass of that’s what I’ve done. sort of
also for a cheap bike you could always go single speed fully rigid very cheap compared to all these big bouncy full sus’s.
get a paper round get anything you can, car washing is a very good way to earn money, I was on nearly a hundred pounds a week on a good week.
baby sit that’s good money.
if you are determined you will work you ass of if your lazy you won’t basically.
money doesn’t grow on trees 🙂 hope that helps….
what sort of riding do you do?Posted 9 years agozokesMember
Work on a paper round, wash cars etc and make do.
I had a £80 rigid jobby from ASDA at 13, broke it at 14, and got a 2nd hand GT Outpost with a Flexistem(remember those)? 2 months saving and birthday money got me a pair of 2nd hand Marzocchi Zokes (hence the neame) pro forks, and replacement rigid stem. Years of slowly replacing broken parts (the forks included) several times finally led me to my 21st when I got a Whyte 46.
I got much better value from the GT than my now dead Whyte. Stick with cheap stuff, it costs much less to replace….. Deciding after 4 years that the £500 to fix the whyte was too much so bought not 1, but 2 replacement bikes (HT and a freeridey thing) totalling over £4k. This was obviously a much better value way to sort out broken forks and shock, oh yes…. 🙄Posted 9 years agohoraMember
OP, the top riders probably didnt have rich families behind them – they just rode (alot). Ride anything and enjoy it. Someone I know who is a good lad once chased down two certain brothers off Mont cherie in France – if he applied himself properly he would have been the one to watch I bet. He never rode ‘great’ bikes but he rode and rode. I wont name names but he is quickPosted 9 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
i had a saracen rufftrax when i was your age, raged the tits off it till i could afford something better. Which was pad for out of £2.50 a week pocket money saved up for 3 years!
Just take care of your kit, dont trash it at the BMX track or take on 40ft gaps and it’l still be doing you well in 3 years when you can get a slihtly better job.Posted 9 years ago
