US bike vacations company is looking for a 'bicycle tour evangelist' who can post social media tidbits to Twitter and YouTube.

Dream job for cycle tourist who Twitters

Briton Andrew Conway is the managing director of Boston-based Ciclismo Classico, a 20-year old global bicycle tour business.

He’s had a bright idea: appoint a social media freelancer. He will be inundated with CVs, prolly all URL-shortened and DMed via Twitter (and if you understand all that, you could be the bike/tech geek Conway is after).

The evangelist will be paid $6000 a year to "build our community using social media."

Conway said: "Weekly activities could include producing a short Youtube video using material sent in by a client or trip leader, launching a photo contest on our Facebook page, announcing a new trip on Twitter, developing an online form for our website, reporting to Ciclismo staff on what competitors are doing, and going on a local club ride and blogging about it."

He added:
"This is undoubtedly a dream job for the right candidate."

The part-time freelance contract starts in January 2010.

"We’d like the person who will take this on in 2010 to start learning about our product first-hand. So we’ll send them on one of our most popular trips in October at our own expense," said Conway.

"The value of this package will be up to $6000! In exchange, we’ll ask the person to document his or her experience with video, photos, and blog entries, and also complete some other projects by the end of the year."
