Do you enjoy shooting videos, taking photos, riding bikes, and traveling? If so, Old Man Mountain and the Robert Axle Project might want to pay you $20,000 to tour around the western US in an adventure van from Carefree Camper Co. for three months to create an eight-episode YouTube series. Along with each episode, the successful applicant will also be responsible for creating shorter videos, reels, photos, and blog posts, all focused on riding your bike.

You must be able to supply a mountain bike or gravel bike, photo/video equipment, a laptop for editing content, and vehicle insurance. You’ll be required to complete multi-day bikepacking trips, interview potential inductees to the society, and visit bike shops, breweries, brands, and resorts along the way. It’s open to anyone in the world, but you must have the ability to work in the United States and you’ll need to be vaccinated and boosted.

To apply, head over to OldManMountain.com and fill out the application form. You’ll also be required to submit a bike check video to showcase your filming and editing skills, and how you do in front of the camera. Applications are being accepted until March 16th at 10:00 p.m. PST.
