Isuzu Trucks PEPlett - sponsors USN

 Ultimate Sports Nutrition (USN)

The USN PUREFIT SERIES has been developed with the finest performance-enhancing nutrients to keep the endurance athlete’s systems optimally fuelled and recovered. This range is all the more appealing to those who are conscious about what they put into their bodies, is that the PUREFIT SERIES contains no artificial colourants, flavourants, sweeteners or preservatives, all of which may negatively influence performance, recovery and adaptation to activities.

 

Powerade

Keeping you hydrated is our job.  Working on your game is yours.  We do what we need to do so you can do what you have to.

To achieve your best performance during exercise, you need to keep your body hydrated, and if you're doing prolonged, intense exercise, water is simply not enough.  Powerade® contains sodium, which helps your body more effectively retain and use the fluid you've drunk to help prevent dehydration.  

Isuzu Trucks PEPlett - sponsor tsitsikammchrystal

Today Tsitsikamma Crystal Spring Water CC operates from tailor-made premises and the business has diversified into an entity that not only bottles still, sparkling and flavoured water, but also manufactures its own bottles and preforms.

Built on the principle of collaboration, Boland Cellar has grown to become one of the largest producer cellars in South Africa. Through our ethos of working together with local farmers and growers, we bring together the finest grapes, talent and wine-making expertise from across the region, drawing on each to craft wines of true excellence. Our wines are inspired by nature. Just as each vine grows in harmony with the soil, the sun and the wind to produce grapes of unique character and quality, each of our wines are crafted with collaboration to bring you the very best the Boland region has to offer.   Founded in 1941, Boland Cellar was created because local farmers understood that through collaboration, they could create better wine, and build South Africa’s burgeoning wine industry in a way that none of them could do alone. Collaboration is at the very heart of what we do, and it has led us to become an internationally-recognised, award-winning wine producer.

Routes

Isuzu Trucks PEPlett - sponsor cape pineCape Pine nurtures, tends and harvests extensive tracts of forest from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We hold a deep love and respect for the forest, in a tradition of South African woodcutters which can be traced back over 150 years. Our forests don't represent a commodity, but a perpetual ecosystem. And through our long-term commitment the quality of our wood, and our trees will be sustained for decades to come.
On average we plant three pine seedlings every minute of every day, throughout the year so when you find the badge 'eco-timber' or 'enviro-timber' on our wood, you know it's been earned.

We are also passionate about sharing this beautiful and unique environment. We offer outdoor activities like hiking, biking, fishing, so you can come experience the forest we love for yourself!
We manage the six day, 60Km long Tsitsikamma Mountain Trail as well. A favorite with many hikers.
