    Is the Bicycle Ambassador position still open?
    Besides being your perfect candidate; living in West Seattle, know the area well, love riding and sharing that with other riders.
    I have served on Boards, have been self employed…
    This position is perfectly suited for my lifestyle and commitments. I look forward to talking to you.
    Sincerely,
    Vicki Pardee
