Devo’s preseason spin class will run the next 8 wednesday nights at Core Value Fitness Center in Durango, near Bread Bakery, from 4:15-5:15pm. The class focuses on the art of pedaling, with a little cycling history thrown in for good measure. The spin will be led by Coach Chad and is open to all U14,19, Sweet Elite male and female cyclists. Cost is $10. Check here for Core Value’s schedule.
