Sockeye Cycle Co. is a locally-owned bicycle business based in Haines and Skagway, Alaska. We’re a small, Alaskan-owned company and we’re looking for a few more guides that are able to start before early June.
Our Skagway-based Bike Tour Guides spend the summer riding with groups on mountain roads and gravel paths through the temperate rainforest. The main attributes needed are:
- Good leadership & people skills. Experience leading or teaching groups preferred.
- The ability to keep organized and stick to a schedule.
- A desire to study, learn and share information about the local region with visitors of all backgrounds.
- A basic understanding of bike mechanics (training opportunities available to increase your skills).
- Experience with bike touring or tour guiding is a plus.
- Guides also drive our tour vans while towing trailers and need to have a driving record clear of major offenses.
Multi-day bike trip guiding around Alaska and Yukon is available to more experienced guides and can be combined with guiding day tours to form a full-time position.
Skagway has a vibrant summer community with a great network of trails surrounding the town. Housing is also available at an inexpensive, partially subsidized rate for the term of the contract. Positions generally make significant tips and include end-of-season bonuses, industry discounts, and pro deals.
