Bike retailer Competitive Cyclist and training app Strava are giving everyday riders the chance to feel like a pro. The two companies teamed up to reward riders with up to $40 every month for their training. Riders sync their accounts between Competitive Cyclists and Strava, then for every hour of training in the app, they'll receive $1 in their store account. Every credit lasts for a month, and though there is a $40 cap, that's the equivalent of riding about 600 miles on your road bike.
