Support Devo’s Holiday Fundraiser
We have some awesome holiday gifts for sale – browse Devo Holiday Gift Baskets, packed full of goodies donated by Devo’s local sponsors. Plus, check out limited edition Devo socks, buffs, and coffee! All orders are available for local pickup on Dec 18-19 at Pine Needle Dry Goods, or add a shipping fee and we’ll ship directly to you before Christmas!
This year, Devo had to cancel many of the usual fundraisers that typically help us keep our program fees low. We need your help to close our funding gap by the end of the year. If riding a bike has made a positive impact on your life, please consider Devo for your holiday shopping and year-end donations!
Order online before Friday, Dec. 11th at 12:00 Noon MST. Must pre-order online!

All proceeds will be MATCHED – Up to $15,000
A group of outstanding and generous Devo families have offered to match all donations and fundraising for Devo in the month of December, up to $15,000. That means, every dollar you give to Devo is doubled until the end of the year, whether it be through a donation, or by purchasing Devo swag or holiday baskets.
In 2021, it is Devo’s goal to avoid raising registration fees for our programs, as we want riding with Devo to be an affordable and accessible option for all families in Durango. Due to COVID-19, operating costs have gone up significantly – smaller group sizes, more coaches, testing, PPE, and screening software has added to our costs. In addition, Devo is down over $50,000 in income in 2020 that we usually receive from community sponsorships, fundraising events, and donations.
In order to make sure Devo continues to offer great, sustainable programs for years to come, we’re working hard to achieve a balanced budget for 2021. Currently, we need to make up a $23,000 deficit in order to avoid a price increase. Taking full advantage of each dollar of matching funds this December will be crucial!
Thank you for thinking of Durango Devo for your year-end giving. We couldn’t do it without the amazing support of our community.
Welcome to the Official Website of Durango Devo!
Welcome to the official website of Durango Devo! Here, you’ll find all the info you need to plan, register, prepare, and ride with Devo. Devo is an age-based, community-centered mountain bike development program dedicated to sharing the love of riding mountain bikes.
Age-Based means our programs are organized by age, not by ability level. This distinction (while different from many other junior mountain bike programs you’ll find across the country) is a key component to Devo’s proven success in developing life-long cyclists. We believe that mountain biking skills and fitness will come naturally as a result of being part of an inclusive community of people who are excited about riding bikes. Riding in an age-based program helps build those key friendships that ultimately makes a successful rider.
Community-Based means our programs the result of the world-class cycling community we have in Durango. The Devo community is made up of incredible riders (see the Programs and Registration tabs), coaches (see the Coach tab), and a long list of amazing sponsors and donors (see the Support Tab).
Visit our “About” page under the Home tab to learn more about Devo, or peruse the Programs tab to find a Devo program for you. We’re looking forward to riding with you!
