Mountain Biking’s first World Champion: Mary Lee Atkins


Mary Lee Stiehrs today

 I am having a hell of a time with this damn computer, and it’s aq pity becaus I wanted to blast a little note about about the great Mary Lee, and how cool it was to see a friend after not seeing her for 25 years, how little she has changed, and how her  humor and her endearing humility hav not lost their charmn.

But the computer needs to thinkn about what I’m typing for about half an hour (I’m trying to make rhubarb jam slump whilest writing. It’s not going well.
Blast” and “fast” are not happening, nor can I see the letters. Must have lost something during my hmonth off in Europe.

  1. Hello Jacquie,

    What a nice surprise to find your blog and especially this post about MaryLee (Atkins) Steihr. We had the great fortune to meet MaryLee and hubby Tracy in Alaska a few years back while on a motorcycle trip. We have since ridden with them in Nova Scotia and the US and enjoyed every minute. They are great people and MaryLee still has the “go getum” attitude in everything she does. Particularly on two wheels whether motorized or not.

    I don’t know if she knows that you posted this, but I will shoot her the link just in case.

    All the best,

    Mike and Kim
