Hello from sunny North WAles

Just a quick hello to everyone from beautiful North Wales in the UK, in my opinion THE home of MTB'ing in the UK. Been riding for for about 15 years, on my 3rd bike (Cannondale Supervee) and ride whenever I can (sorry, when wife allows me - forgot myself there!).

Welcome....My great-great-grandmother came from Wales....what part, I'm not sure....She married my ggg-father when she was 17 & he was 47.....He was a Scotsman who changed his name from MacNaughton to Norton when he worked in the Kew Gardens in England shortly after the Battle of Culloden.....Later they moved with their (large) family to PEI in Canada in the 1840s.....

Why the extra-long generations?.....Family tradition.......Old guys-young women many children.....youngest son turns old, marries young woman etc etc

At 67, looking forward to a 2nd family......Shhh!......Don't tell my wife.....
