The Great Kei Trek, is a 3-day, 223km race/ ride that will be something new and exciting on the MTB calendar. The race is scheduled to start in Queenstown, also known as the “Rose Capital of South Africa” in the Eastern Cape, a town founded in 1853 and finish in the picturesque seaside village of Morgan Bay some 3 days later. This is definitely something for you.

A solo and 2-rider team race, fully catered for, with different tented accommodation options and some new and exciting tracks, and of course some stunning Eastern Cape Hospitality – something that will get you wanting to do this ride. (Warning – the Eastern Cape okes, especially the farmers, know how to look after you)

After an unbelievable 2019 event, and judging from the unbelievable feedback we received, 2020 promises to be even better.

Our new dates are now scheduled to take place from Friday the 7th of August to Sunday the 9th of August. (Sunday is National Women’s Day, so Monday will be a holiday, meaning you only have to take 2 days leave – Thursday and Friday!)
Hopefully the dates accommodate and suit you.
Entries are still open and will close on Sunday the 12th of July.

And finally…If the route is not to your liking you can shoot down the Course Director, Deanbean, on The’s Great Kei Trek thread. Deanbean needed his fireproof suit and bullet proof vest for the week after the GKT. But he survived and will be bringing you another awesome ride in 2020.
