Review Editor


Betsy hails from the Front Range of Colorado, although you'll usually find her adventuring in the mountains or abroad. The newest stamps in her passport are from Turkey, Albania, and Greece. In the summer, she's all about bikes - gravel, mountain, bikepacking, and commuting around town. When the snow flies, Betsy likes to nordic ski, rip around resorts, and dabble in skimo racing. She also tries to pair all winter activities with a visit to a hot spring. Betsy has a background in public health nursing and thinks that being outside is the best medicine.
