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

Read our Cancellations and Refunds Policy

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.
