Here’s a job that combines all those things: The nonprofit Bike New York is hiring instructors for its summer program to teach kids how to ride a bike (so they can learn before they turn 27), plus bike handling and basic traffic skills so you can help breed the next generation of road warriors to help take back the streets from cars.

-Teach kids how to ride a bike
-Determine whether kids have adequate skills to go “off site” for group bike rides
-Lead safe, smooth-functioning group rides off site
