Bike Tour Operations Manager

Farm to Fork Fitness Adventures wants your help to make this season unique and awesome!
Our 2021 season features 18 destinations in the Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeastern United States from May – October. Each of our Adventures highlight gorgeous rural areas, showcasing a variety of farms and locally sourced bites along the way. Our cyclists are a thoughtful group of Fit Foodies who appreciate your attention to detail as much as your passion for a healthy lifestyle.
As Bike Tour Operations Manager, you play a key role in our season and are responsible for the setup and oversight of our Guided Bike Tours. You will work closely with the Director of Operations to ensure the quality and consistency of our Adventures. Expect to work alongside senior staff at the first few Adventures while gaining brand fluency and production knowledge, then to earn independence as the season progresses. This position offers great opportunity for development, increased responsibility, and growth within the company as we continue to expand.
