It's pretty obvious why people love Boulder. Amazing weather, amazing scenery, and besides the occasional snow dusting, mountain bike riding all year round. So many trails, so many options! Kids are born riding bikes. And we want to keep them on bikes and riding, all year round and all through life. Even though school may be in session, they still need a way to get outside, get on their bikes, and put those classroom sitting hours behind them, at least for a few hours. There's no better way to do this than the Little Bellas Thursday Mountain Bike Program!
The Thursday Program is an all girls, eight week program, meeting the first four weeks at Boulder Reservoir, and the second 4 weeks at Valmont Bike Park. Open to riders of all abilities, the main focus of each session is having fun! The program creates a positive, fun 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 while experiencing everything these two different locations have to offer. This program is focused on riding and having fun and not on competition.
The Amy D Sessions, a collaboration between the Amy D Foundation and the Little Bellas, is dedicated to preserving Amy Dombroski's memory and sharing her love of cycling. We aim to honor our long-time friend by inspiring the next generation to love the sport as Amy did.
