Join us for a brief meeting to discuss the CB Devo High School Race Team 2021 season. We will outline the details around season schedule to the best of our ability as the Colorado League race schedule will most likely not be confirmed at this time. This being said, it is looking HIGHLY PROBABLY that there WILL BE a race season for fall 2021!! Due to COVID-19, we ask that all guests wear a mask and we will have enough room to spread out into family clusters. We ask that only one parent join their rider for this meeting to keep our numbers down. Please share this opportunity with other high school athletes that may be interested in joining this amazing team!
Given the enormous success and community support for the 1st Annual Crested Butte Devo Bike Swap in 2019, we’re beyond stoked to bring it back again in 2021!! With nearly 200 riders ages 2-18 in our program, we’ve got lots of great quality gear piling up that still has lots of miles left. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Crested Butte Devo High School Race Team that is supported by the Crested Butte Development Team, a nonprofit 501 (c)3 organization that is solely dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment for young riders to develop the skills and passion that last a lifetime.
We would like this to be a high quality event so please no garage junk. Only bike specific gear in good condition will be accepted. Donations are more than welcome!
Drop-off Location, Dates and Times are as follows:
Gunnison – Thursday, April 29 from 2-6pm at the Jorgensen Ice Arena Parking Lot
Crested Butte – Friday, April 30 from 1 – 6 pm at the Big Mine Ice Rink
Look for CB Devo tents at both drop-off locations
There is a fee of $1 per item that you put a sales ticket on. 20% of each item sold, max of $300, will benefit CB Devo.
If you wish to drop off more that 10 items, please contact us to make special arrangements. We’d like to keep the advertised drop-off windows moving as quickly and efficiently as possible out of respect for busy schedules.
Pick-up will be after the event on Saturday, May 1 from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time. Unclaimed merchandise will be kindly donated to CB Devo or Six Points.
