Hi Sarah,

Good job on your latest blog! I will be using this info for some trips over the summer.

I was hoping you can help. I am currently recruiting for a Copywriter. I require someone who has around 3+ years writing experience in a cycling related field. They must have excellent cycling brand and industry knowledge.

Would you know anyone who could match this criteria?

Kind Regards,
