So pumped to be a part of the Specialized Riding for Focus program with Nitschmann Middle School. They were awarded a grant that gave the school 45 new bikes and helmets. The program is to combat ADHD, get all the kids more active and out riding bikes. The school will integrate cycling into their physical education program over time as well. After weeks of building the bikes it was great to see so many smiles from the kids out riding them!
Adding some rays of sunshine to your day.

The Lehigh Valley Half Day Mountain Bike Camp for girls is the perfect opportunity to squeeze in some outdoor fun before school is back in session. Located in the beautiful Lehigh Valley at Nockamixon State Park, this half day camp gets young girls of all abilities on their bikes and out on some of the best mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania. They have ten miles of trails for the girls to roam and explore along with our skilled mentor staff.
Based around having fun, we play lots of games (both on and off the bike), explore and ride trails, incorporate basic bike skills and then adjust those skills as the girls progress. So whatever level rider, this camp is the perfect fit, and did we mention fun!!! Little Bellas camps are renown for their abundance of smiles, giggles, and positivity.
Still not sure? Well, we also use the mountain bike experience to help the girls gain confidence, build camaraderie with other girls on bikes, seek out new adventures, and get outdoors! So by the time your daughter heads back to school, she will not only be a fantastic rider, she will have a new sense of confidence, and who couldn't use that?
