About Us

Durango Devo is a 501[c][3] youth non-profit! We are dedicated to spreading the love of cycling with the help of supporters like YOU!

What is Devo?

Established in 2006, Durango Devo is a Colorado 501[c][3] non-profit organization.  Devo’s mission is to develop lifelong cyclists! We offer programs for kids starting at age 3, all the way through adulthood. Devo’s programs are always team-based and age-based, meaning participants always ride with a group of like-minded peers. No matter your age or interest, we have a team for you!

Why age-based teams?

With very few exceptions, Devo only offers age-based programs! This means our programs are organized primarily by age, not by ability level. This distinction is a key component of 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 key friendships that ultimately make a successful rider.

Who can participate?

Devo offers programs for almost everyone, regardless of fitness, experience, skill, or interests. Over the years, Devo’s alumni have become world-renowned for their racing successes (think: Olympians Howard Grotts and Christopher Blevins, and Vuelta España winner Sepp Kuss). But, interest in racing is NOT required to ride with Devo! We welcome all riders.

Why not focus more on racing?

While Devo certainly supports the goals of our athletes with racing ambitions, that is just a small part of what we do. At its core Devo is NOT A RACING PROGRAM! Devo’s mission is to develop lifelong cyclists, and in practice, this means a lot more than just being great at riding bikes. Devo aims to foster a safe, respectful, and conscientious appreciation and stewardship for the environment by engaging Durango’s youth with the outdoors on their bikes.

What are Devo’s goals?

Devo strives to develop and better the lives of Durango’s youth through the power of the bicycle. With Devo, riders learn the power of effective goal setting, experience the thrill of tangible improvement, and are inspired and empowered to translate these lessons to other aspects of their lives. Devo believes that bikes are an incredible tool for enacting positive, tangible change in the lives of the people who ride them. This, at the end of the day, is the guiding force that inspires all of us working with Devo.

How are you funded?

Devo is a 501[c][3] non-profit, meaning our goal is to deliver our programs and services to the community at the lowest possible costs to our registrants. To achieve this, we source over 50% of our funding from donors, fundraising events, corporate sponsorships, and grants.

How can I get involved?

There are lots of ways to be a part of the Devo community! You can sign up for a program, volunteer at an event, make a donation, or even talk to your favorite local business about getting involved in our Sponsorship program. No matter how you get involved, know that YOU are making a difference in the lives of Durango’s kids.
