The Unique Journey

The 2021 Prudential PE Plett is one incredible journey as the route takes you on 4 days of awesome mountain biking!

Many riders have claimed this to be “the most diverse route on the Stage Race calendar.”

“A real Memory Maker!”

Stage 1: 87km | 1350m

Woodridge – Humansdorp

One could not wish for a more beautiful start venue for the 9th staging of PE PLETT than Woodridge School.  The journey to Humansdorp will see the group tackle the old tar pass of Van Stadens Gorge. It’s a day of majestic mountains in the Longmore Forests, The Gamtoos Valley and all the way into the single track bike park of Kabeljous. Our route then takes us inland into Misgund and some private game farms all the way into the Zwartenbosh Golf Course. From the lavish Nutritech powered hydration point it’s through the Protea fields of Helgat and finishing between the poles of the Humansdorp Rugby club. World class amenities will be available including a vibrant pub with hot Mugg & Bean food, free beer and wine, yoga classes and a lively village vibe.  Your first day is done.

Stage 2: 78km | 1400m

Humansdorp – Suiderland

A brand new day as we head out through the Jeffreys Bay bike park and into the Tsitsikamma range. We traverse beautiful farms like Happy Valley, Billson and into the sheep farm area of Clive Bramwell. From here we plummet into the Churchill Dam and traverse the Krom River Valley.  Riders will need to #KeepTheCadence, as the Prudential Investment Managers King and Queen of the Mountain awaits. Once we summit we still have numerous farms to cross until we reach the dairy farm of Suiderland.  A working farm shed is transformed by the Red Cherry Events Crew. Kick back in our IGEN WiFi enabled Chill Zone, as you share your Stage 2 stories.

Stage 3: 70km | 1300m

Suiderland – Tsitsikamma

Departing Suiderland, we enter a network of beautiful MTO Foresty and some wonderful contour single track that the Clarkson community along with the Prudential Trail Team have cut. It’s up and over the Tsitsikamma range and then a glorious descent into Oudebosch Farm stall.  The Regyne Protea Farm awaits and shortly after we are back into the MTO Forest and down to the coast of Robbehoek with some magnificent sea views. #KeepTheCadence as we ride Cape Pine Forestry trails all the way to Tsitsikamma Adventure Village, our home for Day 3.  For those riders needing a little more adrenaline, Dennis and his zipline team are waiting and ready.

Stage 4: 67km | 1240m

Tsitsikamma – Natures valley

Day 4 and the home run to beautiful finish line at Natures Valley. The passes of Storms River and Thomas Baines’ Bloukraans Pass are all part of the Day 4 journey.   Between these 2 passes we showcase the SANParks Witteklip indigenous forests and the trails of MTO … truly magnificent! On ascending the Bloukrans Pass through the daily KOM we traverse the settlement of Covey and we can now start smelling Nature’s Valley & the Finish Line.  From here on the views will blow you away as you plummet down Pigs Head and the Otters Trail before landing on the beach at Natures Valley.

You’ve done it … the 2021 Prudential PE Plett is in the bag.
