Preseli Adventure 23/05/1997

Along to Wales for what was to be my last Social Pursuits weekend, but it was to be a good one. Myself, Matthew, Maurice, Viv, Anson, Dee, Alison, Peter and Chor were all booked on this one. Myself and Matthew arrived early and got a bit of extra mountain biking in, and then met some of the others at the pub, in the Village.

After meeting the others at the centre we returned there to play pool with the locals way past closing time. We returned to the centre down a little lane that was very dark and spooky.

Our events for the weekend included mountain biking. The centre staff drove us to a high point so most of our route was downhill. We finished our ride at a tiny little pub in someones front room. Our guide was then going to cycle the 7 miles uphill to get the minibus and collect us. To his surprise we all elected to follow him.

We also did coasteering, which was excellent as first a few people were reluctant to take the plunge but with encouragement they all made it round even if they didn't particpate in the high jumps. We had some strenuous bits as well an overhanging section were we all fell off, even though myself and Chor put all our strength into making it across only the instructor managed it.

On the Monday we did a very long sea kayak which was very tiring, it was lucky the sea was so calm or we wouldn't have managed so much distance. Afterwards some of us spent a little time on the beach before heading home.
