The Bikin’Betties! mountain biking adventures take place in the Columbia Gorge outside of Hood River. Up to 14 girls and 6 women forge strong relationships while they learn to mountain bike together. As a group, the participants learn biking skills—how to wear a helmet and fit your bike, safe braking technique, good body positioning, and stress management techniques—and also participate in team-building and goal-setting exercises. All of this is working toward the central mission of Betties360: to inspire confidence, well being, and community in under-represented girls through action sports, outdoor adventures and life-skill education.
