About Val

One of the "honorary Mennonites" in tights, I have and continue to enjoy the commaraderie and conversation to be had riding with the group. One of the few Women-ites in Tights, she hopes there'll be more females to join the group one day! :) The "boys" are very welcoming!

  1. Nice pictures, Val, but why did you make me look so fat? Did you Photoshop the spare tire in? Fix it right away! Oh, I gotta go on a crash diet! I want to look like Alberto Contador! and climb like him!

  2. YOU DO NOT LOOK FAT!!! That’s my line… 🙂
    I’ll bet there’s days when Alberto wishes he could scarf down a yummy omelette like I had on Saturday instead of weighing his bird seed so that he is light enough to climb the mountains.

  3. Outstanding ride! Thanks for organizing Neil, great pictures Val. Fat? who’s fat? I’m just short for my weight!
    That Norco 29’er Jason borrowed to me was a great set of wheels for this event, felt strong all day and loved the feel of the trails.
    One problem that has now presented is how do I get Audrey to understand that a 5th bike in the garage is common.
    I googled “bike widow” and she is not alone in the world…maybe a 2 week vacation to warm climates this winter…ummm

  4. Jac, you were amazing on that 29’er. That’s the bike for you. Maybe you could make a deal like I did with Rhonda – if both feet are still on the ground when I reach 60 years I can get a new bike! Pinarello here I come!
    . . . and P.S. Val – yes I do! Either that or I stuffed my rain jacket in the front of my jersey instead of the back.

  5. Thanks for the picutures Val, looks like a good time! Last night was a warm, slightly damp, and “solo” MIT ride through La Broquerie and Giroux and then some creative weaving through pylons along the Hwy12 construction zone on way home. Beautiful cloud formations last night though!

  6. Greetings from PEI. Great pictures, Val. Looks like it was a a fun ride. I too have been hitting the trails. When I need a break from studying (and since I am road bike-less here) I’ve returned to my MTB roots: With some friends, I have rediscovered the fantastic technical single tracks that I use to ride in my vet school days. Only get out about once a week and usually come back mildly bruised and battered, but ohh it is fun!! I’d send pictures, but doubtful a camera would survive the rides. Still miss the road though…Hope to catch up with MIT in the fall.
    Take care all, Glen
