Just in time for Mother’s Day, check North Shore Betty—a short film about 73-year-old Betty Birrell and her hard-charging life in southern B.C.
The epic forests above North Vancouver are hallowed ground for mountain biking. The often harrowing North Shore trails have influenced and defined almost every aspect of the sport for decades.
This is where almost 30 years ago Betty picked up mountain biking following a career as a mountaineer and pro windsurfer. Today Betty is a role model for her son, her friends and anyone she’s met along the way. And she’s living, thriving proof that you’re never too old to send.
North Shore Betty was directed by Travis Rummel and Darcy Hennessey Turenne.
