Bold Betties is Feeding Female Stoke

In 2012, Niki Koubourlis ditched her corporate gig, moved to Colorado, and took time off to find herself. What she discovered: her power. Koubourlis spent seven months trying new outdoor adventures, and gained so much confidence, she wanted to bottle and share it. The result: Bold Betties, her female-empowerment tribe.

What started in 2014 as a Colorado Meetup group has blossomed into a community of 46,500 women with 34 chapters in 16 states, providing outdoor experiences for anyone 18 plus with XX chromosomes. Colorado has five chapters, which lead outings like bike rides, hikes, skiing, snowshoeing, trail runs, river trips, climbing clinics, paddleboarding—even puppy yoga. The group also offers bigger trips and retreats to places like Costa Rica and Mount Kilimanjaro. boldbetties.com
