They say Birkie provides year-round, healthy, active lifestyle events for thousands of adventurous spirits of all ages and abilities, so it just felt right that Little Bellas came to town! And here we are!
This program is an all-girls, Give it a Whirl Day held at the Cable Town Trails, great beginner trails for anyone wanting to give mountain biking a whirl! The trails lie within a mix of beautiful pines and hardwoods and pass through a meadow filled with milkweed and monarch butterflies in the summer. Who wants to chase some butterflies while biking?
This Give it a Whirl day aims to get girls of all abilities either introduced to the sport or help them develop an already present interest. Based around having fun, we play lots of games (on and off the bike), explore and ride trails, incorporate basic bike skills and then adjust those skills as the girls progress.
We also use the mountain bike experience to help the girls gain confidence, build camaraderie other girls on bikes, seek out new adventures, and get outdoors! These are learning skills your daughter can take with her throughout life!
It is a great opportunity for girls looking to try out mountain biking as well as for those who are ready for the next level of challenge.
Wisconsin Program Lead
Born and raised in Central Wisconsin and now living on the shores of Lake Superior in the northwest part of the state, there’s no doubt Amanda is homegrown! An Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner by day, she’s also an incredible community advocate. Kudos to Amanda for assisting in the development, building and maintenance of a trail system at Hartman Creek State Park in central Wisconsin. You might spot Amanda lined up at an endurance mountain bike race or wave hello to her in the winter while out fat biking along snowy trails. Amanda sightings have also occurred when there’s a quality cup of Jo paired with a delicious sugar cookie involved! She enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband Darrin, their dog Sherpa, and in case you didn’t guess, she doesn't mind getting muddy! Sounds like a perfect fit for a Little Bellas Lead, right?! We sure think so.
