Little Bellas comes to Columbia, Tennessee

The newest Little Bellas program will start on Sunday, April 14 at Chickasaw Trace Park, located slightly northwest of Columbia “Muletown,” Tennessee. The person responsible for bringing Little Bellas to Columbia is none other than mom, mountain biker, and neurologist, Megan Hall, who was a beginner mountain biker herself just six years ago. She’ll be able to connect with Little Bellas on several different levels: with the “not yets,” as someone who was also new to mountain biking not too long ago; with the youngest shredders to the more advanced riders, who can see in Megan what can be achieved through skills progression and practice; as a mom who has those special “mom skills;” and as a neurologist, whose ability to get kids to wear helmets is a gift to all of us.

“I feel like the thing that’s going to be most helpful will be just knowing that all kids learn differently, and we can support them," Megan said. "We can turn something that might be difficult or challenging into a lot of fun."

Megan’s talent for organizing cycling groups and teaching kids how to ride dates back to her own childhood in Wyoming before her family moved to Tennessee. As a kid herself, she was teaching neighborhood kids four and five years old how to ride bikes. Fast forward to recent years, when Megan did something similar by organizing a group of moms from her daughter’s Girl Scout troop to stay active and connected through planned events.

Now she’s motivated to bring Little Bellas to the greater Nashville area. Several factors led her to apply for a new chapter: a perceived lack of outdoor sporting activities for young girls; community support for mountain biking; and an expanding trail system. She chose Chickasaw Trace Park for its range of easily accessible trails for all levels, from paved, dirt, and gravel trails to authentic beginner mountain bike trails. There’s also a pump track, jump lines, beginner drops, small rollers, large grassy fields, bridges to ride over, wildflowers, picnic pavilions, an activity cabin for rent…plus lots of other features for before and/or after a Little Bellas session. For families who may want to kill time while Little Bellas is happening, there’s also a radio-controlled car racing track, boat ramp, playground, creek for sloshing around in, and a remote-controlled airplane/drone flying field.
