Young Devo Team

Young Devo Team is for 5-8 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.

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. During the Fall season, we’ll also include some elements of cyclocross and we encourage kids to try our local cyclocross races in the “Pre-J” category which is non-competitive, free and super fun.

To participate in Young Devo Team riders must:

  • Be 5-8 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
