Dear Mr. Kelley,
I am writing today with much interest in your advertised position of Bicycle Mechanic for your bicycle store. I am very familiar with your store, and would love to bring my knowledge, expertise with bikes, and skills to your position.
I have included my career history in the enclosed resume, but as an overview to this, I have worked with bicycles all my life. I have been licensed to repair and perform fountain maintenance on all bicycles, and have also worked in three bike shops over the course of 12 years. This said, I am very knowledgeable in brands, styles, and performance of various bike models for road, street, and hybrid use. I am also an enthusiastic seller, if your bike store requires it, as I love biking; and would love bring my experience and my personal love for the industry to your position.
Thank you for your time and consideration today. Please give me a call at (555)-555-5555 to arrange for an interview. I look forward to hearing from you.
