Here’s an ideal job we found in Outdoor Jobs–for the touring cyclist at heart.
It’s creating sales for bike tours in Italy, and you may have the chance to tour with them as well.
You’ll likely have to put up with cranky people who know little about cycling, and you’ll have to lug their bikes in and out of a van when they’re tired. But who cares?
You’ll eat the best pasta, bread, and olive oil, enjoy red wine, and develop a deep appreciation for Italy!
