Up next in August: Programs, Ask a Pro, and get this – maybe a new bike!
August seems like a nice time to lay back and soak up summer…unless you’re a Little Bella. If you’ve been patiently waiting for your program to start, hurrah! August is finally here!!
Here’s what’s coming up for Little Bellas across the country and around the WWW!
Programs kicking off in August
These are the upcoming Little Bellas programs that you can still sign up for:
Aug. 4 – Blackwood, N.J. Sunday Program, eight Sundays from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Camden County College Trails
Aug. 12-16 – Lehigh Valley, Pa. Half Day Camp, 8:00 a.m. – 12 noon at Nockamixon State Park
If your local Little Bellas chapter has a waitlist this time around, take heart – we are working hard to make Little Bellas available to more participants so stay close to our website FMI!
Give it a Whirl
Little Bellas hosts Give it a Whirl Days in communities that have expressed interest in having a program in their area. Give it a Whirl day aims to get girls of all abilities either introduced to the sport or to help them develop an already present interest.
Upcoming Give it a Whirl Days
August 1 – Erie, Colo., 5:00-7:00 p.m. in Lehigh Park, ages 7-13
Sept. 8 – Athens, Ga., 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Trail Creek Park, ages 7-13
Ask a pro
At the end of the day, are the pros really just like everyone else? This is what we’re trying to find out in a new collaboration with our Pro Ambassadors, who take over the Little Bellas Instagram account for a day and answer YOUR questions.
Coming soon we will announce who’ll be the Little Bellas Insta Pro (hint: we’ve got two lined up), so keep an eye on littlebellasmtb for updates!
Thank you Kate Courtney, current world champion and Little Bellas Pro Ambassador who kicked off this project on July 18 when she revealed that getting nervous means you care, that waffles are her everything (can you relate?), and that when you’re at a high point, be humble; when you’re at a low point, be hopeful.
Make a break and get motivated, visit our Instagram account!
Sneak Preview: Little Bellas bike and helmet by Specialized
There’s a trailhead at the crossroads of freedom and independence that leads to self-confidence. The trail is littered with obstacles, but there’s more than one way to overcome them — there is no “right” way, there’s only your way. There are no limitations to what you can do on this path to self-confidence – you are at liberty to exercise a little imagination as well as some creative muscle, no one will stop you.
Little Bellas and Specialized want to help you on your journey and to do that, we are excited to announce the latest release of the Specialized limited edition Little Bellas Pitch mountain bike and accompanying helmet!
The bike is finished in Little Bellas’ signature purple and features plenty of surface area to make it a custom ride, thanks to a variety of stickers, including inspirational phrases, iconic stickers of waves, cacti, flowers, mountains, snowflakes and so on, and letters to truly personalize the bike. Holographic foils and attention-grabbing colors deliberately capture the Little Bellas spirit. The helmet matches the bike but the message is stronger than just coordinating colors. “We got this” makes a statement on the back of the helmet and is meant to encourage all the girls in each Little Bellas group. Both the bike and helmet proudly display the Little Bellas logo. Proceeds from sales of both the bike and helmet are donated to Little Bellas.
