Best coffee in town..

Sorry Karin, this post has been a long time coming, but for those who don't know, the best coffee in town, or the whole of the Southern Cape, is from Doubleshot coffee bar. Right opposite Checkers, they serve up the best "cappos" around and will be legendry when I start training again next month. They also make some incredible looking healthy food. Thanks Karin and Karin, keep up the great buzz... for your caffeine hit.

Golf at Pezula

So my mates and I played an awesome round yesterday morning, compliments of "The Mighty Quin" at Knysna Country Club. We played such fantastic golf that we then hit Simola for another 18 holes in the afternoon. That game didn't go as well for me.
Then we had the ultimate game, thanks to my Sister at Pezula. And as amazing as the course is, was how my game sucked. I lost every ball I had and never hit a single decent shot, geez it was terrible. I think I basically used up all my good golf yesterday, and will take me another year to get it back! But eat your heart out Todd, check these tee boxes!

Nearly time to ride..

So just a quick update from Ruby's side.... "As you can see I can reach the handlebars now and just waiting for my legs to grow a bit.."
So now I better go build her a bike, I'm sure she'll take "The Viking" out at least.. ha ha.

Working proper!

So been back at my shop, now my second week and finally know where everything is and what the prices of the different bikes are. It's been a good season, if you can be on holiday when the 94.7 is on, you've gone alright. Well that was on our objectives so we've met another one then!
Got final confirmation of the Drifter series final points and I've got my 4th consecutive series in the bag. Awesome way to finish of my year. Anyway, waiting for the weather to clear down here, the golf course is calling!

Hell and Back 08

So after much deliberating, I landed up going to ride the Hell and back. Well it was my 12th time doing this event which has just become an annual party weekend. So Dr Evil and I set off for the weekend and had a great time. Drank loads of red wine, plenty beers and I just really enjoyed it in Hel. Was a little dissapointed to see "The Viking" not suffer enough, but then again at least he was there this time! So for now I'm stuck in the Shop, catching up on a year of admin and cleaning, with season just round the corner, trying to get all my ducks in a row and enjoying my time off the bike. Should anything exciting happen I'll keep you in the loop. Like a round of golf yesterday with some mates up at Simola, good round, shot 117, lost 85bucks but only 3 balls, great day, not bad considering my last round was a year ago. Look out Tiger!

Chandelier Drifter and Mondi Addo challenge

Ok so I'm about two weeks behind, but herewith a quick update...The Chandelier Drifter went well, with a win there, will be enough to give me the overall series for a 4th consecutive season, and a great way to finish off my year. With the last Drifter this weekend in Howick, not much can change in the overall, looks like another one two in the series for MTN Cycling. Last weekend Dave and I took the wives and the Ruby away to the Addo park where we took part in there new race. The race was really tough and with no training for 10 days, I managed to finish second, not bad considering John-Lee Augustyn was there and my form was out the window. We did however see the big five and Ruby came to her first race! I'm contemplating going to the Hell and back this weekend, kind of expected for me to be there... let me see if the weather clears first!
