Surf Sip 'n Cycle

As always, it was an absolute pleaseure spending a wonderful weekend with some fabulous AW ladies. The ladies were extremely impressed, and very much enjoyed meeting each other and having a lot of fun. Tam and Rob from Dirty Detours were fabulous as always. Even with one of our riders who had a bit of a wake-up call on how unfit she was, thus walking rather than riding over a few stretches, Rob was wonderfully encouraging and put her very much at ease. Josh was as enthusiastic as ever, and very disappoionted and apologetic about the hazardour surf conditions. He definitely made the correct decision in deciding it was unsafe, and thus not feasible. He also offered the alternative of paddling on the river, but the windy cold conditions would have also made that unpleasant. The ladies all definitely agrreed... so we went to plan B. That being some fabulous coffees at the Blue Ginger Cafe (highly recomended by Rob and Tammy and they were right!) followed by the cheese factory, chocolate factory, Provadores and the Nut & Cereal factory! The accomodation at Surfpoint was not as favorable as it has been in the past. The kitchen facilities were very lacking - all the cutlery was plastic, as were the dozen or so plates and there were only perhaps 6 mugs and no glasses at all. Unfortunately we also experience the "quiet after 10pm" rule was completely ignored and unenforced. A very rowdy group of rugby players and ladies returned sometime around 3am and we all knew about it. It was a shame as it put a bit of a damper on things.
