For the past 4 years we have greatly enjoyed the experience of building a community focused specifically on the gravel discipline. The name we chose for this extension of the Gravelstoke brand was Development Team, or “Dev Team” for short. At the time we first launched the concept it was the only one of its kind. Since then, the growth of gravel has outpaced all other forms of cycling and has become more mainstream than we could have ever imagined. For 2023 we are thrilled to continue the most successful cycling club of it’s kind, and hope you consider joining us for what will be our finest year yet.
The Development Team is about our collective positive influence on the sport of cycling, connecting with like-minded riders, and developing in the areas we love most about gravel. For 2023 the project continues with the following areas of focus: increased member connections, team experiences, and an expanded list of sponsors. Through these opportunities we look forward to strengthening our community, exploring together, and offering additional benefits through team partnerships.
Before you consider applying to the 2023 Development Team, please read our core brand values and how they relate to our team experience below:
A Culture Of Inclusivity – We welcome and support riders of all ages and skill levels. We celebrate our differences and learn from one another.
Promote The Best – Every year we seek out the brands to support our team who are doing the best, most innovative work in the industry. Members enjoy discounts, exclusive collaborations, and unique experiences from our team partners.
Quality In All We Do – Each year we carefully design and hand-pick a new bundle of gear that’s exclusively available to the team. These pre-ordered goods feature the new team logo and always meet our standards of durability and function.
Making A Positive Impact – We seek to develop riders in all areas of cycling. Ensure our activities, events, and goods make our community stronger and the world a better place.
For those interested in joining we invite you to submit a short application that will ask a few simple questions about yourself, what you can contribute, and what you’re looking to accomplish in 2023. After we review your application you should receive a welcome email with an invitation to purchase a membership for the 2023 season, which includes exclusive benefits and a new limited edition team bundle. Applications will continue to be accepted until we reach a limit of 300 riders. We hope to offer additional opportunities to join later in the year. Thanks for reading and we look forward to connecting!
