    I have a niche sport site about cycling. I get about 25.000 visitors/month. (50% usa / 50% europe). At the moment I use Adsense but the CPC is very low (0.01).

    Any suggestions on how to make some money with this?

    cycling porn?

    Seriously, You should check out Amazon Associates and see if there are any good cycling related items you can promote on your site. Perhaps trying to find independent affiliate sites too: http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGLS_enUS353US353&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=Biking+Affiliate

    Try CJ alongwith Adsense for 5X more Profits ;). There are plenty of Sports Affiliate programs on CJ, so just use their banners on your site and get Paid anywhere between $5-$100 per sale or Lead :D

    My mother in law cycles big time, and to her, meeting some of the famous cyclists is worth alot of money. So why not offer some travel deals to go to the next tour de france or something?
