General Safety Guidelines:

  1. Coaching and Supervision: Our program is led by qualified coaches who prioritize the safety of all participants. Coaches, including substitutes and volunteers, are required to meet the minimum certification requirements outlined in Section 2.5 of the Durango Devo Employee Handbook. Any official coach will be able to show proof of completion of these requirements through their Devo Connecteam app. Notify us immediately at 970-403-5187 if you suspect someone leading a Devo group is not an official Devo coach. 
  2. Equipment Safety: All participants are required to use appropriate cycling gear, including helmets, gloves, and any other protective equipment necessary for their chosen cycling discipline. Coaches will do their best to identify equipment hazards, but it is the responsibility of the parent to ensure their child’s bike and equipment are in proper working order. 
  3. Communication: Clear communication is essential for a safe cycling environment. Participants will be briefed on safety protocols, and coaches will maintain open lines of communication with both participants and parents.
  4. Emergency Procedures: In the event of an emergency, our coaches are trained to respond promptly and efficiently.  Emergency contact information for participants will be kept on file, and parents will be notified immediately if necessary.
  5. Rules and Guidelines: All participants and parents are expected to understand and follow the rules and guidelines laid out in the Devo Member Handbook
