Our Story

In 2012 James and his team went on a journey to find a solution to the social ails experienced in the Ocean View community where they themselves enjoyed a pleasant and active youth lifestyle consisting of soccer, cycling, hiking, camping amongst other outdoor activities.

Present times sees our youth being exposed to gangsterism and drugs, along other social dysfunction due to the lack of infrastructure that can offer a platform or safe environment for our youth to participate without fear of being harmed.

Communities Wellness Solutions (CWS) was established with the core focus on a holistic lifestyle and instil in our youth a life bigger than drug and gangsterism, aiming to build resilience. CWS started a cycling school holiday program with borrowed bikes from the local high school. The exponential growth of the program brought about a demand for more bicycling activities and bikes.

Morning Mastoera thank you for all your sacrifices to build this ladies cycling club and making it a success story. You could have chosen to do a corporate job but instead you chose to stand by Jimmy and believing in his dream to do big things in OV for the kids and expand in many things. When I think about it this ladies cycling is your baby and if you hadn't started it we would have still stand along the road cheering the other cyclist on CTCT coming past Ocean View, but thx to you and Jimmy we are that cyclists coming pass OV and we are cheered at.You and your family will only reap the rewards of your unselfish devotion to this club . Mr&Mrs Esterhuizen you are truly a power couple who stands out and make things happen. #Rolemodels, Thank you, Rene
