Riders needed for Portland, OR Marathon May 20, 2012
I need 4-5 riders with two-up experience to carry photographers/TV for the Portland, Oregon Rock-n-Roll marathon Sunday May 20 from 7:00a until 11:00a.
These are fairly compensated positions for rider and bike plus a chance to have some fun on a closed course in a very family oriented event.
** You must be extremely comfortable and experienced riding two-up at very slow speeds. **
The definition of slow speed is slightly faster than walking. The pro runners go much faster but we spend a lot of time covering the citizen / amateur fields too. Riding two-up means you will likely have a full sized adult male on the back of your bike squirming around to get the best shots at 3-5 mph. We spend just as much time stopped and waiting for our photographers to get a preselected shot from the side of the road.
Your bike must be in excellent working condition, serviced and clean. Helmets and full safety gear are required as well. No loud mufflers, that's why I prefer fellow Beemer riders. If your drivers license record reads longer than a menu at a Chinese restaurant or you have a DUI history that would not work.
Prior experience riding in organized events is a plus of course.
