Sabbatical Bike Maintenance

So Friday evening. After 14 days of touring (plus a couple of weekends with family) I am camping between Llanbrynmair and Pennant (yes that is in Wales) getting ready for The Welsh Ride Thing which starts tomorrow.
I’ve a fair amount to sort out to make sure I take as little with me as possible. But I thought I had better do some maintenance on the bike as well. So far in 14 days of very heavily laden touring through some big hills the only thing I have done to the bike was to squirt some water on the belt drive once when it was squeaking a bit (just used my water bottle while moving).
Anyway I have now changed the hydraulic disk brake pads as I don’t want any problems when hammering along an off road track down a mountain. The front pads were fairly worn (but the rear pads were changed more recently). Simple job and all done 🙂
On with the packing
