Prudential PE Plett

M&G PE Plett

Prudential PE Plett.

The journey from PE to PLETT is one of the most diverse mountain bike rides in Southern Africa.

Traversing the properties of 57 landowners – including trail parks, MTO Forestry and SAN Parks – the 274-kilometre-long M&G Investments PE PLETT is a spectacular race from Crossways Village to Natures Valley. The 4-stage event boasts card- and cash-free race villages, 3 nights’ accommodation, and the options to upgrade your experience.

The 2025 edition of the M&G Investments PE Plett is taking on a slightly different format. Our riders will start their journey from Mentors Kraal in Jefferys Bay, following over 280 kms along the famous Garden Route and finishing 4 days later at the Kurland Polo Club.

We’ve decided to spend the final 2 stages of the 2025 edition exploring the Tsitsikamma Forest. This decision is based on feedback from our riders after a highly successful running of this format in 2024.

Whether you’re a dedicated racer or a relaxed rider, this is a spectacular journey you shouldn’t miss. Entries are limited to 250 riders for “The Ride” and 80 for “The Tour“. This prestigious event has sold out for the last 6 years. We also have a new pricing structure, which means the earlier you enter, the more you save as we build up to South Africa’s most diverse stage race.

Race organisers, Red Cherry Events have combined the previous Tough and Lite routes into one route for everybody. Creating a course which can be ridden hard by the competitive riders seeking to challenge themselves, but which provides the avid riders in the field with a manageable day out. It’s a race for keen mountain bikers who enjoy a diversity of climbs, descents, trails and fast-rolling roads.

Our aim is to get you to the race village by lunchtime, so you can enjoy an afternoon by the pool, chilling, bonding and sharing war stories from the trail over an ice-cold Heineken beer or glass of KWV wine.
