After hearing Caitlin Thompson talk about her work with Little Bella’s,
we were hooked!
Philly pro-cyclist Thompson founded the Philadelphia Chapter of Little
Bella’s which has its roots in Vermont. The Little Bella organization
was started in 2007 when several competitive female cyclists decided to
do something about the lack of female athletes in the sport. They created
Little Bellas with a mission to help young women realize their potential
through cycling. The organization creates a local community focused on
positive energy, healthy life styles and goal setting with young girls
aged 7-13 in mind.
Currently, there are Little Bella chapters around the country. The Philly
Little Bella’s consist of roughly 35 young athletes who will meet
and train together in August and September 2019 in West Fairmount park.
Their training includes eight sessions on Sunday evenings along with their
own cycling team jersey. For more info on Little Bella’s please
Little Bellas will participate in the Philly Mountain Bike Phestival set
for Jun 9, 2019.
The Phestival takes place at the Philly Pumptrack, located along The Wissahickon.
The family friendly day includes all skill levels and guided rides through the Wiss.
