Ashland Devo: A non-profit organization for kids 

Ashland DEVO aspires to reach our mission by offering a series of age and skill based courses in a weekly format. Sessions will be held Spring and Fall, with 6 week modules offered for 2020. Classes will range 1-2 hours based on age and group ability, and will maintain a minimum coach ratio of 1:5 for trail riding and 1:7 for non-trail venues. DEVO is short for development. Developing traits mentioned in our Philosophy section starts with solid fundamentals and skills. Our unique program curriculum is based on a combination of diverse bike experience, BICP instructor program, NICA on-the-bike skills 101, and USAC training fundamentals. Our Head Coaches will have completed our DEVO coach clinic, a background check, NICA Level 1 certification, and first aid/CPR as a minimum before leading groups. Our volunteers and mentors will be made up of older riders looking for school or team service hours, and parents who believe in our program.
