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.

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.
