You’re a fun, hardworking, big-hearted cyclist committed to delivering high-end customer experiences. You have strong communication skills and genuinely like and care for people.

You’re gracefully patient and happy to ride — half-wheel free — with #newbies to racers with palmarès. As a certified Top Guide, you’ve amassed what we call rare and valuable skills and our guests are forever impressed by your unique capabilities.

These aren’t run-of-the-mill bike tours — you’ve got to be trained up and ready to clock in 800 kilometers plus per week.

  • A curious and efficient solution-oriented mindset
  • A practice of extreme ownership

  • An Italian home base

This position is not for you if:
