Introducing The Great Kei Trek Farmer’s Ride
This event was introduced in 2018 to accommodate those with schedules not affording them the opportunity to take the full three days off work or be away from family, and it turned out to be an absolute winner.
In 2019, The Farmer’s Ride will take place on the 4th of May, and will follow the last day of GKT from Komga to Kei Mouth – a distance of 75km, and this is ideal for those who are not yet up to the challenges of a full 3-day stage race. For more information on the route, please check out the website - www.greatkeitrek.co.za and look at the Day 3 route map and profile.
Kicking off at 07.30, riders will follow the exact route and enjoy the same hospitality at the finish on the Morgan Bay Cliffs. All post-race activities for the day, such as your medal collection, your free burger and of course a few refreshments, will happen at The Kei Mouth Golf Club, just 4km away.
Costing just 220 bucks, I’m sure you will agree that this is tremendous value.
And of course one lucky rider will win a team entry into the 2020 Great Kei Trek – a prize valued at over R 13 000 – a prize for you and your partner.
Because of the huge success of this event in 2018, we are going to insist you enter online – CLICK HERE to enter
