On 8th September I was riding at coed y brenin trails centre near Dolgellau. You arrived at the start point by the bike shop the same time as me. I interrupted your conversation with another man to ask about the start of the “Apple” trail, and we had a short conversation about what to ride and the level of my bike skills. You told me you were local.
There was a twinkle in your eye. What I should have done was to ask what trail you were riding and if I could join you, or to ask if you wanted to meet for a drink afterwards. I have regretted it ever since.
I was riding a blue and pink BMC bike and wearing blue, with a grey/yellow helmet and sunglasses. I think you had blue trousers and a yellow top, but I’m not certain. You had shin guards.
If that is you, or you have a friend you told you this story, please get in touch.
