This job's a little ;) out of my skillset, but I had to pop in and say that this is by far the coolest job perk I think I've ever seen. :)

Thanks! We think it's pretty cool too. And it *is* motivational. We don't run it all year long, and commuting % is definitely higher during the "on" months than during the "off" months. :)

Best,

Susan

If I commuted in from the Gorge everyday on my bike and the commuting program worked on a per mile basis... That's about 120 miles per day. By my calculations that works out to a lot of free gear. It might be worth quiting my PT job.

But winters would be tough.:eek:

The job sounds great ...but Im new to biking ,and I dont think I have as much knowledge as you require. :( I live in Beaverton, about a 20 mile commute.

Suzie, I think you should send a resume in if you're interested! From what I've seen, you're enthusiastic enough to learn anything!

This really is a cool sounding opportunity! I would be sending DH to apply for it if the commute were not a few thousand miles....;)

Definitely send in your resume! I'd do it if I could...though a commute from Seattle would be harsh. Sounds like a fantastic and supportive work environment :)

Suzie- I don't think it's as much a matter of hands-on bikewrenching, chain cleaning or bike computer calibration as it is just having a sincere passion for the concept and a willingness to help TE flourish as a company. Everything this board really represents- encouragement, compassion, support, the commonalities that bring all us biker chicks together- despite how different we all can be. :D
TE's one of those companies that says "You can do it- and we can help!"
I think you should apply. Bycycle.org might be able to come up with a nice route- I think you'd take Millikan to Walker, just follow it north and west through northern Hillsboro. The area's pretty conducive to biking once you get past Murray Hill- just very, very gentle rollers, trees, and some open fields, especially in the Rock Creek area. 20 mi? I live off Hall and Scholl's in Portland/Tigard/Beavertron and it's 12mi give or take some- you're further west, but maybe further south, too. I'd think the distance would be close to the same...

I vote for one in Chicago (I know Champaign is too small)! Every store out there is starting to have "WE KNOW WOMENS BIKES" front and center on their web pages and ads...TE can actually walk this walk.

Welp, they still need to open an outlit (hmmm... think I'll keep the typo :) ) in Champbana; perhaps as a wing on Champaign Cycle... yea, and develop products for commuters - like turn signals! I'd provide consulting and reviews for free ;) :D
