Arriving last night I noticed that my brake pads were more or less non-exsistant so today's plan was to head out and get some. I had promised my sisters dog I would take him running so it was only going to be a short ride. I looked up local bike shops and found one about 14km away which looked perfect. I detoured on the way there to get to 16km but on arrival it was shut. Nothing else was turning up on a search, unless I went to Loughborough itself, so I decided to try Halfords. They had the right pads so I'm all ready to ride home tomorrow.
30km today means I am 53% through the challenge.
