Back to questions
I am interested in exploring
careers in promoting bicycle travel (and participating from
time to time) and wonder if you could direct me to organizations
here in the U.S. that are involved in this subject.

Adventure Cycling Association and the League of American
Bicyclists I have done some investigating of my own, stumbled
upon local advocacy groups, but would like to know more.
What other organizations are out
there? How can I align myself to work for such organizations?

you have concerning this topic is appreciated! Thank you

For a somewhat more direct approach,

You could cast about for jobs, but, methinks just as important,
also see what kinds of people want (or have) jobs or careers
like the one you seek.
