Manager Application Open!

The application to be manager of the bike shop for next year is now open! If you are passionate about bicycles, and you can see yourself working hard to make cycling on campus as easy and accessible as possible for the UW community, this is a very unique opportunity that I strongly believe is both the most challenging and most rewarding job a student could have on campus.

While experience at the ASUW Bike Shop, or general experience working on bikes or at another bike shop is desirable, NEITHER are required.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the position! Apply here by Sunday, April 10.
