About Little Bellas
Little Bellas is a mountain bike organization working to help young women realize their potential through cycling. Their programs support riders ages 7-17, through a crucial period in teenage years that often see a drop off in female participation in cycling. With volunteer-led chapters around the country, the Little Bellas community empowers girls through the sport, emphasizes the importance of goal-setting, promotes healthy lifestyles, and recognizes the positive effects of forging strong female bonds.
"I’m inspired by changes I see over the course of our program. From the tentative girl who comes out of her shell to the girl who didn’t think of herself as an athlete and now believes she is strong and brave, they all end up in an even better place than they started."

More Biking Scholarships
A grant from The Cairn Project will build on 2017 funding by providing scholarships and gear support for a new girls biking and mentorship program in Lakeville – led by dedicated and experienced volunteers. Little Bellas rounds up its crew of bikers every week during the season for trail rides, games that promote technical skills, nutrition education, camaraderie, and much more.
