Silver Stallion DEVO/CLUB RIDES Program

After-School Coached Drop-In Rides | Navajo Nation | Gallup

Please consider a donation to support the Silver Stallion (@Silverstallionbicyclecoffee), a small nonprofit 501(c)3 bike shop/coffeeshop located on the edge of the Navajo reservation in Gallup, NM with a mission to develop bicycle infrastructure for the Navajo Nation.

This 2023 Giving Tuesday we’re raising $12,800 for the next year 2023 after-school DEVO/CLUB ride program and MTB instructors. Your contribution will directly support our goal to empower youth ridership on and around the Navajo Nation by supporting a vital piece of the puzzle.

Currently we have 6 total after-school DEVO CLUB programs in partnership with the Gallup McKinley Co. School system as well as Gallup public charter and private schools that served over 125 student riders and  coaches.

Our instructors are an essential part of everything we do, and they make it possible to safely and adequately support and host events across Dinétah and the surrounding communities. 

Thank you on behalf of everyone involved!

– The Stallion Crew
