Canadian bike tour operator looking for local Loire rep

Message from Susan Walter of Days on the Claise

I've had an email from a Canadian bike tour operator (Randonnée Tours) who is seeking a local rep. They want someone who speaks French and English and can meet clients (usually in Tours) for an hour to get them going on a self-guided bike tour. The pay is €70 per client, usually in groups of 2-4 and they expect to have 20-100 clients in 2017. They also want someone who knows about bike maintenance or can take bikes to the repair shop and has storage for about a dozen bikes. There are extra payments for this. They are looking for people around Tours, Chinon, Azay le Rideau or Amboise.
Anyone interested should contact Randonnée Tours. Their contact info is
