An organization in Arkansas lures new residents to the area with an offer of money and a free bicycle.

According to United Press International, the Northwest Arkansas Council’s Life Works Here Initiative announced the move.

The economic development group offers aspiring residents of the region a payment of $10,000 to relocate.

They will also have a bike for enjoying the area’s 162 miles of paved trails and 322 miles of mountain biking trails.

“Right now, we know a lot of people are re-evaluating their priorities and their lifestyle,” said Nelson Peacock, president and CEO of the council.

Peacock said they want to seize the opportunity to capture their attention at this time.

Meanwhile, a satellite internet service provider offers to pay someone to go under “digital detox.”

News agencies reported that the selected applicant for the so-called “Digital Detox Challenge” will receive $1,000.

The person needs to spend 48 hours living out of an RV at a U.S. national park. The winner should not use any Internet or phone service.

Satellite Internet said it will give the applicant a stipend in addition to the prize.
