Shameless Self-Promotion to the Melbourne Cycle Community

16 Feb

Now that we have decided to settle into the city of Melbourne, I have begun to reach out to the local cycle community in order to find my way into the inner sanctum of organizers.

So far I have stopped by the Bicycle Victoria Network main office, visited a few cycle shops (and found a mean deal on a dual purpose fixie at BSC) picked up a cycle map from the most excellent visitors center and begun researching potential cycle routes to both Adelaide and Sydney and finally contacted a few tour companies to ask if they need a hand around the shop you know, for some of that wild colored plastic money.

So here is the shameless self promotion bit; My resume, available to anyone I have directed to the blog to check out what we’ve done so far. I hope they like what they see and get back to me if they need a passionate hand around the shop.

I’ll also take any advice on the copy, because my resume skills are a bit rusty. I haven’t formally had to apply for work since about 2005.
