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.
