PEPLETT

 

Prudential PEPLETT

The 2019 staging of Prudential PE PLETT is one incredible MTB adventure as the field of 200 riders depart from  Woodridge School some 20 minutes from Port Elizabeth.  These 4 days take you on an amazing journey through the hand carved bike park of 3 Rivers Trails , the rich dairy farms of Tsitsikamma , the national forests of San Parks and the unchartered territory of  Cape Pine with the finish 4 days later on a spectacular downhill run on the Otters Trail into Nature’s Valley. To avoid the busy March period we have moved the event 2 weeks earlier into Feb. This will also allow for those EPIC riders to conclude their training with some time to spare.

 

The 2019 event also sees a brand new Day 2  village called Suiderland positioned at the base of the Tsitsikamma mountain range . This village is nestled between our 2 regular overnights of Zuurbron and Tsitsikamma Adventure Village and makes for an easier and more interesting Day2 and creates a wonderful gateway to our day 3 start .These villages with guaranteed great food, hot showers etc are a true “No Wallett” affair with all the Beer and wine being on the house in our popular Chill Zone.

There are 2 options re Race Distance and you have the Choice of LITE at an average of 60km per day and the TOUGH ONE at a daily average of 80km. One also has the option of riding SOLO or TEAM. Don’t miss out on this boutique style stage race … enter today on www.peplett.co.za
