Thank you for your interest in joining Revolution Devo Cycling. Joining the Revolution is pretty simple. The steps for joining are listed below but first a little information about us.
Revolution Devo Cycling is a 501(c)3 organization. We are a junior development cycling team that was formed in order to help support all children and parents who have an interest in competitive cycling (road, mountain and cyclocross).
We invite members to join Revolution Devo Cycling throughout the year, but in August of each year is our official kick off. We recommend our Juniors go to as many races as possible. During the Fall season there is a weekly official Revolution Devo cyclocross practice, usually at Eva Bandman park on River Road in Louisville. During the Spring and Summer Road/Mountain Bike seasons, Revolution Devo parents and volunteers try to offer as many riding and training opportunities as possible for each age and experience level.
Our program is designed for kids age 6 – 18. Kids need to have basic riding skills but we also move kids between groups based on their skills and experience. We divide the kids into two groups:
- Squirrel Squad – This group is for the younger kids (ages 6 – 10) with the focus being learning skills and having fun.
- Wolfpack – This is for the older kids (ages 10 – 18) who may be more focused on advanced skill development and racing.
Revolution Devo Cycling is a 100% parental volunteer program. You’ll get what you put into it.
Travel to certain key regional races is recommended as is the commitment of parents to help support the organization. New parents are encouraged to ask for assistance! With Revolution Devo Cycling membership and a $150 per family annual fee, team members receive a small financial allotment for uniforms (kit). In addition, Revolution Devo Cycling athletes often receive team discounts when purchasing bikes, equipment and services at the bike shops that sponsor us. We understand the cost of new bikes can be a barrier to entry for some; please let us know how we can try to help! Being part of Revolution Devo Cycling often gives parents the opportunity to purchase used bikes and equipment from other Revolution Devo families. Also, many families often have hand-me-down uniforms available.
