Eastern Cape’s Premier MTB Event,
A Truly Unique Journey

The journey from PE to PLETT must be one of the most diverse mountain bike rides in Southern Africa.

With over 27 landowners along the 290-kilometre long M&G Investments PE PLETT. This 4-stage and 3-night linear journey provides 300 riders each year the privilege to traverse mountain bike heaven. From the single tracks of 3 Rivers Trails, forests of MTO and the views from Sanparks Otter Trail, this is one journey not to miss out on.

With entries opening on 1 April you better be fast on the trigger as we have sold out for the past 4 years. Click here to enter. 

About the ride

The 11th staging of this unique event will start on Wednesday 22 February 2023 from the Crossways Village, just 25mins drive from Port Elizabeth. Finishing 4 days later down the famous Otters Trail into Natures Valley Rest Camp on the 25th of February

We have combined the previous Tough and Lite routes into one route for everybody. We are not targeting the Racing Snakes but more the keen mountain biker who wants a great ride and to be in the village by 1pm. All the time looking forward to an afternoon of chilling and bonding.

Our route for the 2023 M&G Investments PE PLETT will be live from the 1st of June 2022, click here to read more.
