Devo Nation, this Thursday night at 6pm, David Farmer, Rotem Ishay and Joshua McDowell will be on hand to help with bike fits for the U14, U19 Explorers and Flyers Programs. Taking place at the Durango Rec Center, Devo has been doing this seasonally since 2008. Make sure and swing by if your kiddo has grown an inch or two. Happy Spring Devo!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR! On Wednesday 4/3 there will be a fundraiser for Betsy Richards! At the Irish Embassy Pub 5 – 8PM!
There will be lots of very cool bike related items, gift certificates for local restaurants, lodging, services, etc. There will be live music and fun!
UPDATE: The organizers have collected 100+ items which is WONDERFUL! However, please, do not donate any more items! If you can donate cash please contact Greg or Barb or come to the party with fistfuls of cash!
This Saturday at Fort Lewis College the Devo coaches from Push Bike, to Explorers, will meet from 9am to Noon to discuss the art of youth cycling instruction. Devo has over 40 coaches, from ages 14-50. If you are interested in coaching with Devo, give us a jingle. Get ready for a good season of cycling.
He’s just a puppy, but we think he will help the young Devo’s this season in the art of wiggle. He will accompany the athletes on several trips this season and is sure to make some smiles occur along the way. Meet Chops!
