Devo MTB (Age 9-14)

Planning for our 2021 programs is underway. You can expect our programs to be very similar to 2020, with just a few tweaks in dates and similar small changes. Watch this space for updates in mid Jan or early Feb 2021. Email us with questions.

2020 Program Info Below, to be updated for 2021 soon

To manage covid risks, we implement a number of safety protocols including small groups, distancing, staggered times and locations, and many other steps recommended by health officials. Read our Corona Precautions and Policies.

The Devo mountain bike program is for girls and boys ages 9-14, from beginners to experts. This is the core program of BJC’s progression model. Our focus is on skill and fitness development and an introduction to racing from beginner to intermediate levels. The program is led by professional coach Lester Pardoe, now in his 15th season with BJC. Lester’s coaching team includes up to 20 additional coaches.

To attend, participants must be comfortable riding on grass and dirt and have a bike that meets the BJC MTB requirements. This program will potentially include bike paths, and paved or gravel roads, but the focus of the program is off road riding.  Please see this link for our FAQ for MTB Devo Program.

Where do we ride?

  • All over Boulder County. We start with basic trails and build from there.  By the end of the season the riders are comfortable on almost all the trails in Boulder County:   Marshall Mesa, Valmont Bike Park, Betasso, Boulder Reservoir, Heil Ranch, Picture Rock, Hall Ranch and more!

Bad Weather: We almost NEVER cancel practice due to bad weather. We ride in the rain and snow! Be ready! Please dress for the conditions that day! This will range from very hot to very cold, and include rain, snow, wind, sleet, etc. When trails are too muddy to ride, we’ll ride other locations. In the case of extreme weather we will cancel practice, but it almost never happens. We do not provide make up days.
