We want program registration to be easy and fair. We are transitioning all programs to a three week pre-registration period. With this new system, everyone will have three weeks to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. After pre-registration closes, one of two things will happen: a) if the program is full or over capacity, we will use a random selection process to determine who gets in; or b) we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
We hope this new process will ease some stress and help create a more fair registration system for all Little Bellas girls and families. See more information on our blog here.
The Arkansas seasons brings some of the best riding weather to be had. Kids are in school and what better way to help them get outside and get some fun in after sitting in a classroom than the Little Bellas Bentonville Weekly Program!
The Bentonville Sunday Program meets on eight select Sundays at Blowing Springs Park throughout the season. Open to all abilities, this program is based around having fun and creates an environment where each girl can make new friends, ride trails, and play games, all while learning the skills for mountain biking. With a pump track and miles of flowing trails, Blowing Springs is the perfect place to learn new skills and ride sweet terrain.
Each week girls and mentors (we don't coach, we mentor) participate in a variety of activities, trail rides, and games. Through the games and different activities, we focus on having fun, while using these elements to teach and working on basic to more advanced mountain bike skills. This curriculum is designed to promote camaraderie among the girls, progressive skill learning, and perpetuate the love of mountain biking. All while having a great time! 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.

Kelsey "discovered" mountain biking accidentally in the 7th grade with a friend when a detour on a ride took them on a newly made trail. She never looked back. Kelsey works to get people on bikes and to make Northwest Arkansas as bike friendly as possible. . Road, mountain, or cross, if you pedal it and it has two wheels, Kelsey wants in. Her amazing dedication to cycling and a general joy for life always shows through whether she's making up TV shows for Little Bellas campers to "watch", hanging out with her dog, Nancy Drew, jumping in a mountain bike race, or quoting Meryl Streep movies.
