Travel the USA and help cities become more bicycle friendly. The League of American Bicyclists announced two job openings for their Bicycle Friendly America program. The first for a Bicycle Friendly Community Specialist is related to Trek’s recently announced “Game Changers” partnership with the League BFC program, in which the League sends a specialist to 100 Trek retailers each year for the next three years. This specialist provides on-site assistance to retailers striving to make their cities certified bicycle-friendly communities.
The BFC Specialist will work collaboratively with the BFA Program Team, membership and Trek retailers to lead hands-on workshops across the country. Successful candidates will have a connection to bicycling, experience facilitating groups, knowledge of nonprofit organizations, be resourceful and solutions-oriented and demonstrate effective leadership with diverse stakeholders. Possess a demonstrated history of success working both independently and as part of a team. Proven ability to collaborate and work successfully with multiple constituents to deliver and improve programs and initiatives.Given the amount of travel required for this position, the League believes that there would be a strong likelihood of the ideal candidate spending 1-2 years in this role before transitioning into a programmatic role within the Organization that would not require significant travel. Urban planning/design/engineering experience is a plus.
The second position for a Bicycle Friendly America Program Specialist will be the primary contact for communities, business, universities and states looking to be great places for bicycling. The program specialist provides information on how these places can improve conditions for bicyclists in the areas of engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation/planning and researches the latest programs and projects available within these categories.

Ah, here we go: reliable transportation means you must own a car. It sounds like he’s had some bad experience in this regard, but he’s kind of asking for the moon as well.

My son started his first ever day of paid employment last Friday. He biked to his job, but nobody was there. A half hour later he gets a phone call: the person who’s supposed to train him can’t show up because his car broke down. Oops.
