Fostering a passion for riding in our youth...

The Developmental Escape Velocity Organization (DEVO) is Vancouver’s oldest and most successful youth cycling program. Founded in 1999, it has helped launch the careers of some of Canada’s top cyclists. We offer programming for road, mountain bike, cyclocross and we work in partnership with the Burnaby Velodrome Club for track.

DEVO has grown into one of Canada’s premiere youth development cycling programs. It has fostered athlete development from novice riders up to national champions racing professionally. DEVO serves a fundamental role in rider education, providing a positive and fun team atmosphere for riders to develop not only bike skills and fitness, but also the mental skills and abilities to persevere through challenges, be part of a team, and realize both personal and team goals.
