So I'm more than likely going to end up there September-Christmas, then possibly again January-March.
Is there anything at all to make it better than it first seems (a consumerist hell hole in the desert).
There's a roadie club that meets once a week (apparenlty they also run and swim but I'll not hold that against them). The nearest velodrome I can find on google is too far away.
There's a sailing club, but it's ridiculous money to join (c.a. £2k!).
In desperation I've even considdered kitesurfing, but I live in Berkshire and the sailing club has a pylon over it so that's right at the bottom of the list if there really isn't much to do.
Is there any kind of 'countryside' to explore (with a big camelpack)?
