Hhhrrumphh - bugger St Valentine and his nasty over-commercial enterprise.
Off on the bike for a sulk around Gisburn Forest.
Directions of "Go to Long Preston then turn left past the station" were technically correct but a little misleading but high hopes on arrival... Nasty screaming from brakes (turns out to be water or contamination on pads) and scraping sound from what I thought was rear spindle meant I undertook running repairs. On removing rear wheel one brake pad pinged off into the distance. 20 mins of searching proved fruitless resulting in a ride back to car park without rear brakes. Cue bike going back on car, trip to Ilkley for repairs and general annoyance at planned day failing miserably.
Must try harder.
