Speaking of volunteering, Jim Moore, a COWs member, is the new Director for Bicycle Rides NW. You can crew for Bicycle Rides NW. As a crew member you can be paid (positions start at $600 per tour), or you can trade working one tour for riding the other for free. They have several openings for our Oregon tour July 21-28, and possibly one or two for our California tour Aug. 4-11. The positions are with our Camp Central (hospitality) team and our Tent & Porter (tent rental) teams. There’s light-to-medium physical work involved, more so in the Tent & Porter position. They have a max of 300 riders, and they want their crew to work hard and then have as much fun as possible. If you’re available and interested, contact Executive Director Jim Moore by email or call 503-281-1526.
