3-4 months rent-free in Oregon for Social Media Manager

JOB POSTING Engagement is Bikabout's 1 goal this year so we're offering our spare bedroom in Hood River (Pacific Northwest paradise) for 3-4 months in exchange for managing our social media and designing an engagement plan for the future. I am calling this a sabbatical because this is an UN-PAID position and I'm looking for an experienced social media manager with a proven track record of engagement. I'm hoping that the draw of beautiful Hood River, the Queenstown NZ of America, will entice someone that is looking to transition their career, or simply needs a break.  Feel free to read my LinkedIn post on how amazing Hood River is, Bikabout's current stage and the position.

Bicycling survey on abuse of power in bike racing

Hello everyone, Bicycling magazine is investigating the issue of alleged misconduct and abuse within competitive cycling. Because it's an important issue for which there is very little actual data, we have developed an informal survey aimed at competitive cyclists and others involved in the sport to help understand the scope of the issue. (The survey was designed by our editors in consultation with Kristen Dieffenbach, PhD, associate professor at West Virginia University and an expert in coaching education and sport psychology.)  If you're currently—or have ever been—involved with bike racing in any way (as an athlete, mechanic, coach, official, staff member, or parent, for example), we would be very grateful if you took our survey. (If you're not involved with competitive cycling, but know someone who is, please feel free to share.) For the most accurate results, we need responses from a wide range of individuals within the sport, of any gender and in any role. We will not share respondents' identities without consent.  Our hope is that no matter what the outcome, the results will help all stakeholders continue to ensure that competitive cycling is a welcoming place for current and future athletes.  If you have any questions, please let me know. We appreciate your help with this important issue. Emily Furia Deputy editor Bicycling magazine

Back my new feminist bicycle sci fi Kickstarter project?

Hi Wheelwomen! I'm running a Kickstarter project to fund Biketopia, the fourth annual Bikes in Space anthology of feminist science fiction about bicycling. In it, me and 10 other authors (including several Switchboard members) envision a lot of different futures that are a lot bikier and either a whole lot better or worse than what we've got right now. Perspectives galore! You can back the project to get the book, and escalating deals on other books in this  fine genre, til March 2. Also, I'm accepting submissions for volume 5 through the end of February. I would love to read stories by y'all. <3 Your wayward leader, Elly
