August and September is an amazing time in the Bay Area. Awesome weather and there are hardly any rain days meaning the trails are dry and the riding is fantastic. The Little Bellas Marin Fall Weekly Program is a great solution to help kids get out on their bikes, finding adventure.
The Marin County Fall Weekly Program is an all-girls mountain bike program, meeting on five select Sundays in China Camp Park throughout the spring. The program is for girls of all abilities to play games, learn mountain bike skills, and build confidence in a fun, safe environment. Gentle, rolling terrain, beautiful scenery, and more challenging trails to amazing vistas all combine to make the mostly singletrack of China Camp ideal for all levels of riders.
The girls and Mentors (we don't coach, we mentor) participate, each week, in a variety of activities, trail rides, and games. It is through these games and different activities, we focus on using different elements to teach and working on basic to more advanced mountain bike skills, all while the girls are having fun! This curriculum is designed to promote camaraderie among the girls, progressive skill learning, and to perpetuate the love of mountain biking, all while having a great time!
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.

*Pup in the Pic Alert!* Okay, moving on. A self-described east coast transplant, Kate moved to the Bay Area and jumped right in. Or rode right in. (See what we did there?) She’s already established herself as a business owner and entrepreneur in the area now wants to get back to her mentoring roots as well. She mentored professionally in MA for years and one of her bikes still lives there for whenever she goes back. But have no fear, she has two bikes living with her and fingers crossed it may grow to three (looking at you Specialized Non-Electric Diverge). Kate couldn’t be without a bike, just won’t happen, and she wants to share this love for the bike with as many women and girls as possible. To quote Kate. “Combining a passion for empowering women (girls) and mountain biking under one umbrella is amazingly fulfilling.” Right there with ya, Kate!
