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.
Summer is coming! Summer is coming! It may be a little snowy and a little cold now but soon enough the snow will melt, and kids will be looking forward to getting out of the classroom and into the outdoors! School is awesome but after a long year of learning, expanding their minds, and hanging out in a classroom, a long awaited break is needed. Time to get out and release some energy. The Little Bellas Cuyuna Monday Program is a great way to get kids out for much needed fun and play!
The Cuyuna Mountain Bike Program meets for eight select Mondays, late spring into summer at the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails. The 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 Lakes offers a wide range of fun for all levels of rider.
Girls and Mentors (we don't coach, we mentor) ride once a week 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.
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.
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!
