The misty forests above North Vancouver, British Columbia, are hallowed ground for mountain biking, a place so harrowing it's influenced every aspect of the sport for over 30 years. It's also where Betty Birrell, at age 45, picked up mountain biking after a career as a mountaineer and professional windsurfer. Three decades later, the single mother still thinks life is one big playground-and that you're never too old to send.
In honour of Mother's Day and all the bad-ass moms out there,North Shore Bettyis now live on our website. We'll also be hosting a film tour, kicking off on5/TKwith the official world premiere at our Patagonia retail store in Vancouver, British Columbia.
