We want program registration to be easy and fair, so we will run this program's registration with a random selection process. Everyone will have one week to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. Pre-registration does not guarantee a spot, and we do not collect payment during the pre-registration period. 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; those who are not selected will be placed on a waitlist or b) everyone who pre-registered will be accepted into the program and we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
Is there anything more magical than the desert in bloom? Crisp temps and a cool breeze make it pristine for riding bikes. Little Bellas Grand Junction Weekly Program is the perfect after school activity for girls looking to get outside and have some fun!
The Grand Junction Weekly Mountain Bike Program offers five recurring sessions at the Water Tower Trails which are full of single track, flow and rocky trails! We'll meet at Wingate Elementary School, pedal over to ride the Water Tower Trails and then mix in some games during each session. Whatever the level or ability of rider, the program is based around having fun and creates an environment to allow each girl to make new friends, ride trails, and play games, all while learning skills for the sport of mountain biking.
Girls and mentors (we mentor, we don't coach) ride once a week and work on a mountain bike skills progression through different activities, rides, and adventures. These 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.
Grand Junction, CO Program Lead
Kim grew up in Nebraska but moved to Grand Junction in 2013. She is the oldest of three siblings but the only one who has such adventurous hobbies like mountain biking, running the Grand Canyon, and primitive camping. She tried bike racing but found that advocating for the sport is more her jam. We support that! Kim hosts weekly social rides and enjoys mentoring in programs like Little Bellas. She is passionate about breaking down the silos that women and girls encounter in outdoor recreation (especially in male dominated activities), and looks forward to continuing to do that and having fun on bikes in Grand Junction!
