We don’t want to lose any returning Devo families so always email Sarah (sarah@durangodevo.com) if a class fills up….we’ll try our hardest to get returning Devo kids into groups without compensating safety and the fun factor!

We Almost Made Cycling Cards in 2008

  |   Superstar Interviews

In 2008 we had an idea to make cycling trading cards of the local cycle lovers and eventually the Devo youth. Bicycle Bob of Durango Cyclery was our prototype subject. The card was designed to replicate the 1986 Topps Baseball Card that was one of the most unpopular card designs of the 80’s due to its black top and white sides that were very susceptible to showing wear, thus reducing the cards value. Someday in the future, this project will see the light.Roost2008_Contract
