Board VP Position Open!

Bike passion runs in your blood. You follow nonprofits on Facebook and subscribe to national bicycle organizations’ email newsletters. You and your friends plan the next weekend bike trip or bike ride to brunch. You have either a law degree or CPA certification under your belt, and you want more people in Spokane to be empowered by riding and educating about bicycles!

These are qualities that we envision in our next Board Vice President, but they are not requirements.

We are on the lookout for our next Vice President to serve on Pedals2People’s Board of Directors. You will tag team with me and Team Pedals as we spread the love for biking in and around Spokane! Please submit a letter of intent and resume to p2p@pedals2people.org.

Cheers,

Annie

Ok, so it’s still two Saturdays away, but we wanted to keep you informed….Here’s the scoop.

P2P will be at The Lantern Tap House between 12-3 pm Jan 17th hosting a slow race, and New Belgium Brewing will provide the prizes. Also, when you purchase a New Belgium Brew, our little bike org will get a portion of the proceeds.

1. Ride provided bike on the marked course.
2. Forward motion shall be provided by the muscles of the rider.
3. No part of the competitor’s body may touch the ground.
4. The bicycle must maintain forward motion at all times.
