Program Description

Registration Process 

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 go to a lottery system 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.

Program Description

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

Shannon spent her childhood chasing two older brothers from sport to sport which inspired a lifelong love of PLAY and inspired her to pursue a 15+ year career as a PE & health educator. Her favorite teaching day of the year was of course the annual school-wide bike rodeo (500+ students). Shannon is also a champion for females in sport and believes in the magical power of female role models. She started Girls on the Run in Western Colorado, the Little Bellas Chapter in Park City, Utah and loves to coach womens mountain biking. As a member of the Little Bellas family, she is thrilled to pay it forward to future female generations and empower more girls to ride bikes. When she isn’t riding bicycles, she’s planning her next bike adventure, baking chocolate chip cookies or in search of the next best taco truck.
