Promoting Your Cause
Your Ambassador profile is a place where you can promote your shop, club, organization, or personality. Let riders know about the area and type of riding you represent by including photos, and connect to the community by providing links to social media, websites, and contact information.
Each of your Ambassador routes will be linked on your Ambassador profile page, and your Ambassador profile logo will be displayed on each of your published routes, providing a link back to your Ambassador profile page.
Use the profile page to share your mission, your project, or your excitement for cycling in your area. Let riders know what makes your routes special, and why you've chosen to share them with the cycling community.

Set-up your profile
Most important to your Ambassador profile is the description. Tell readers about your background and experience, and share details about your cycling region. This is a great place to put links to your own website, as well as links to any of your sponsors, local tourism organizations, cycling groups, bike shops, local businesses, or any other sites you would like your readers to see.
As you type out your description in the Markdown field on the left side of the screen, you will see a real-time preview of the formatted text on the right. Highlight text, then choose the Markdown (formatting); you can use H1 and H2 headers, bold, italics, bullets, numbered lists, and in-text links.
When you’re finished editing your profile, click the Save button at the bottom left of the screen to see your changes on the page.
