Are you passionate about bike riding? Do you want to help your friends and neighbors enjoy great on-the-bike experiences? PeopleForBikes is recruiting ambassadors for Ride Spot, a new digital biking platform developed to make it easier for people to discover, share and enjoy great bike rides at a time when the practical and health benefits of bicycling are especially important.
PeopleForBikes’ ambassador program aims to amplify the wide range of bike riding experiences available to Americans coast to coast. The common thread uniting Ride Spot ambassadors is a love of bicycles and great rides, a passion for helping people and a commitment to making biking better for everyone within their communities and beyond. Ambassadors are asked to create and share at least two “Ride Stories” every month that bring their bike experiences to life with photos and written narratives. These stories, which will be shared on Ride Spot and PeopleForBikes social media, will encourage and inspire other riders.
“Becoming a Ride Spot ambassador is a way to share your love of bicycling, strengthen the virtual community of riders and make it easier for more people to get on bikes in your neighborhood or city,” said Eric Lynn, Ride Spot program and product director at PeopleForBikes. “At a time when community-building and the simple joy of an amazing bike ride are more important than ever, we want Ride Spot to be a helpful, trusted resource for new riders and longtime bike enthusiasts alike.”
The Ride Spot platform includes a suite of free features such as suggested rides, audio and visual turn-by-turn directions, guidance on equipment and riding techniques, plus helpful information on finding bike shops and supporting local bike advocacy efforts. Following a soft launch last spring and accolades from Fast Company in late 2019, Ride Spot is now rolling out in cities across the U.S.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ride Spot users and ambassadors alike are reminded to follow proper social distancing guidelines when they ride, choose safe rides close to home and comply with all government regulations and restrictions.
