Plett MTB & Trail Run Festival presented by Sothebys International
Sat 19 Dec - Sun 20 Dec 2020 @ Greater Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape


Organiser
Garden Route Events


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 THREE 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 three 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: 15km with approx. 100m climbing

                                36km with approx. 620m climbing 

                                61km with approx. 1080m climbing      


Plett MTB Festival will now host a trail run on the evening on 19 December 2020. There will be two trail running distance options, 15km and 6km! The trial run will take place at Cairnbrogie, running on their farm, through the singletracks. 


A skills clinic will be held on Saturday afternoon, 19 December, for all Sapling Boys and Girls (U12) at Cairnbrogie at 10H00. This Skills clinic is free to all Sapling Boys and Girls who are entered for the 15km MTB.
