journalism, enjoy sharing stories and happen to like bicycles of any sort 
too, we'd love to hear from you. We're looking for people who can make

Radio experience is a bonus, but not mandatory. If you're interested, send 
us an email at alongfortherideradio at gmail.com outlining why you're 
interested and what you might bring to the show, and we'll be in touch
