Plett MTB Festival - The Whale Trail
Mon 16 Dec 2019, 08:00 @ Greater Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape

Garden Route Events

“3 Days of MTB Fun” gets changed to: “Chapter One: K-2-P; The Whale Trail”


Plett, set in the perennial Garden Route of South Africa, has long been known as one of the ‘founding MTB fathers’ of MTB Trail riding.

Single track, jeep track, farm roads and forest canopies.... when it comes to grinding gears, Plett is certainly the place to do it

Our races strive to always be TNT styled riding (Trail NOT Tar) to give you, the rider, the FULL value to embrace what the forests have to offer.

The iconic Knysna-2-Plett (ALL off-road) ride has ALWAYS been at the top of every MTB’ers wish list….now we’ve made it a TNT reality….with TWO incredible distance options, so that every MTB’er, visitor and local alike, can tick this bucket list ride off.

Starting from Kruisfontein just outside Knysna, the two MTB journeys head back towards our home base at Cairnbrogie, traversing and criss-crossing both MTO and Sanparks sections of the forest and the choicest elements of the Red and Green Routes of the Harkerville Forest.

Distance options: 36km with approx. 620m climbing 

                                61km with approx. 1080 m climbing
