After nearly 30 years on the harrowing and hallowed trails of British Columbia’s North Shore Mountains, Betty Birrell still thinks life is one big playground—and that you’re never too old to send. Betty started mountain biking after her career as a mountaineer and professional windsurfer. Three decades later, Betty Birrell is a role model for her son, her friends and anyone she’s met over the years. She’s living proof that you’re never too old to send.
