Headed out yesterday at 3pm as I was meeting friends at 5:15pm so I thought I'd get in a bit of riding first. Just before I left I checked my phone, Carolyn's back was playing up so she couldn't make it. I got as far as Smithills when my brakes (both of them) stopped working and my bike was making odd noises, some trailside fettling and they worked for a whole five minutes, at this point I decided to head home and get my singlespeed. Got home and Vikki had text me saying she wasn't riding, knee injury. I decided to be lazy and stay in.
I really must get my trek sorted, it needs so much doing to it and in 67 days it is my bike for transwales, I just need to find a money tree somewhere!
