Program Description

This program was originally scheduled for an earlier start date. Due to recent circumstances, we are postponing this program to the dates listed above.

We only allow 10 participants to sign up for the waitlist.  The waitlist is FULL at this time.  Please sign up for the parent interest form if you want to receive updates about registering for this program next year.  

There is nothing like summer in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  Kids are ready to get out, play, and explore all these pristine mountains have to offer.  The perfect solution: The Little Bellas Asheville Weekly Program!

The Asheville Weekly Program offers recurring, all-girl mountain bike riding sessions, Tuesday nights at Bent Creek Community Park in the Pisgah National Forest.  Open to riders of all abilities, the main focus of each session is having fun!  The program creates a positive environment for girls to learn riding skills and gain confidence through the sport of mountain biking.  Using both trail riding and specific games both on and off the bike, the girls practice proper riding technique, eat snacks, and make new friends, all on Asheville's go-to mountain bike trails.

Girls and mentors (we mentor, we don't coach) meet once a week, every Tuesday over the course of 8 weeks during the summer.  The goal is to get girls outside, out on trails, and out with other girls to reinforce common bonds and build confidence, all while progressively building mountain bike skills throughout the summer. This program is for riding and fun and is not focused on competition.

Financial assistance is available if needed and we also have equipment available through our Gear Up program!  Please communicate any of these needs when filling out the registration form for the program.
