Ramon Martinez here from LA's new County Cycling Collaborative (The CCC) made up of local bike collectives including the Bicycle Kitchen, The Bike Oven, The Bikerowave and the Valley Bikery (along with two local bike advocacy and education organizations, the LA County Bike Coalition and C.I.C.L.E.).
We all got together to write a grant for a working position known as the Bike Wrangler, that would scour the County's universities, police departments, Metropolitan Transportation Authority and other sources to find used bikes, recover them, and redistribute them. Now that the money has been awarded to us, we're looking to hire the position.
Check out more details and find a job description at the Bike Coalition's bloghttp://lacbc.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/job-opening-la-county-cycling-collaboratives-bike-wrangler/. Send a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 7th at 5pm and we look forward to seeing you in LA. Pass the word on and keep rocking out in the big bike world.
