The Bike Fed is always looking for great people to help make Wisconsin bicycling better. Here are our open opportunities.
Job Description: Ride Wrangler
Apply before March 28th
The Wisconsin Bike Fed is looking for an experienced hand at organizing bicycle rides and events. Rides include single day and multiple day family rides, training rides, races and tours, all of which will be fundraisers for the Wisconsin Bike Fed. The Wrangler will manage each event and have the ability to start new events. The position will report to the Deputy Director in the Milwaukee office, but could work from our Madison office. The position will have support from other Bike Fed staff, particularly for registration and marketing materials.
- Responsibilities include providing and coordinating all aspects of each ride:
- Route planning
- Day of logistics
- Ride support, sag, nutrition
The Wrangler will work cooperatively with law enforcement and local officials where necessary, supervise volunteers, help implement marketing including use of printed material and social media and post-ride analysis and planning for future events. Some rides will include races, so the Wrangler will be responsible for all requirements of sanctioned events. The Wrangler will be expected to manage about a half dozen events per year in a way that creates the highest quality experience possible for the riders and generates revenue supporting the Wisconsin Bike Fed’s work around the state.
Desired applicants will have several years experience managing successful rides and races and have a marketing background with strong communication skills. A background in writing, editing and photography will be a plus.
The position is full time with a salary range from $35,000 – $45,000, depending on experience, and includes benefits. The Wisconsin Bike Fed is an equal opportunity employer.
