The Cuyuna Give It A Whirl Mountain Bike Program welcomes girls of all and any abilities to have fun, ride bikes, play games, and learn skills for mountain biking. It's main focus is to have fun! The goal is to create a fun, positive environment for the girls to build confidence and learn new skills. Whether it's riding the flowing trails or dropping into the pump track for some fun on rollers, Cuyuna offers a wide range of fun for all levels of rider.
Girls and Mentors (we don't coach, we mentor) ride and work on a mountain bike skills progression through different activities, rides, and adventures. 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. The girls will be given healthy challenges in a friendly, fun environment. This program is for riding and promoting a love for mountain biking and is not focused on competition.
Cuyuna, MN Program Lead
Lori's personal motto is, Make a Difference. What better way to make a difference then becoming a teacher and it's exactly what Lori did. And she loves teaching and helping kids learn, be it in the classroom or out on the trails. They moved to Cuyuna to be closer to their daughter and participate in all the outdoor activities her family loves. All kinds of riding, bike tours, kayaking (land of a thousand lakes), and nordic skiing (remember, MN, snow-a-plenty), anything to be outside. She has dove head first into the Cuyuna mountain bike scene, becoming a ride leader for the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike team and getting another amazing Little Bellas chapter to the great state of Minnesota! We can only imagine the awesome Lori will continue to bring to the area in years to come! Yet she's the one who feels lucky to have moved to an area with such a large cycling community, like in Cuyuna, and now she's helping to expand and grow that community. Making a difference she is!
