Young Devo

UPDATE Aug 10, 2020

FALL SESSION – New! See below (Also check out our Cyclocross program for Fall 2020)

Registration for the Fall 2020 season opens Friday Aug. 14 at 7 am here.

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 local parks, trails near town, and Valmont Bike Park.

In 2020 we are implementing a number of safety protocols including small groups, distancing, staggered times and locations, and many other steps recommended by health officials. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of expert medical sources. 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 we put our 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
