Young Devo

The BJC Young Devo Team is for 6-8 year old girls and boys who have basic riding skills but want to improve and learn to ride off-road terrain such as parks, trails near town, and Valmont Bike Park.

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

Over several sequential lessons, riders will learn basic mountain bike skills that will enable them to stop better, negotiate turns and bumpy terrain, ride up and down hills, ride small drop offs, and additional skills such as front wheel lifts.  For the last practice parents, with MTB experience, will be invited to join us on a local singletrack ride as riders put our new skills to use.

To participate in Young Devo riders must:

  • Be 6-8 years of age
  • Own a mountain bike with gears and hand brakes
  • Have a certified helmet
  • Be comfortable riding on grass or dirt
  • Be able to stop their bike using hand brakes
