Up next: what’s new with Little Bellas in July
Our wheels are spinning so fast as we head into July that who needs brakes when Little Bellas nationwide are the ones who are punching up the pace?!
Here’s what’s coming up for Little Bellas around the WWW and across the country!
Give it a Whirl

Did you know...?
Little Bellas Pro Ambassadors have been voluntarily showing up at chapters around the country to live a day in the life of a Little Bella since – for many of our pro partners – there wasn’t a program like Little Bellas around when they were young women.
Thanks to Kate Courtney, Lea Davison, Flora Duffy, Sofie Caldwell, Katheryn Ogden, Sarah True, Ida Sargent, and Hannah Rae Finchamp, as well as the star-studded crew at Sea Otter for paying it forward to Little Bellas at programs in California, Vermont, New Hampshire, Colorado, and Utah!
Rainbows + sparkle + Little Bellas = the Mantraband by Kate Courtney
Current Mountain Bike World Champion (and Little Bellas Pro Ambassador) Kate Courtney has designed a commemorative bracelet – called the Mantraband – in collaboration with Little Bellas to help underwrite future Little Bellas programs nationwide.
Each Mantraband will be packaged with Kate's own mantra,
She leaves a little sparkle
Wherever she goes.
Let this be your reminder that you are
Fierce and fiery and brave.
And that no one can dim a light
That shines so brightly from within.
Dream big, rise up, sparkle on.
Below Kate's mantra it would say "The Little Bellas organization is a mentoring on mountain bikes non-profit for girls. Thank you for continuing to grow and empower the next generation of females through mountain biking."
The package's reverse side will say "$5 from the sale of this bracelet is being donated to The Little Bellas organization."
What really sets us on fire!
