Welcome to what was once mountain biking’s best kept secret. The Investec Great Kei Trek.
The scheduled dates for 2021 are Friday 30 April to Sunday 2 May.
The Investec Great Kei Trek, is a 3-day, 180km race/ ride. A race that isn’t a race. A 2-rider team, or individual race, with different entry package options.
And have we made some major changes for this year.
This year, Morgan Bay will be the home base of The Investec Great Kei Trek.
That’s right. In 2021, the entire event will be based at the stunning seaside village of Morgan Bay, just an hour’s drive up the coast from East London.
Three days, three different rides, but one venue. Morgan Bay.
Three days, riding on privately owned farms, riding into the Old Transkei, crossing the Kei River Ferry, watching the sea break onto the cliffs of Morgan Bay. Exciting visits will include the brand new Bayview Farm, Oppie Plaas, a charming country restaurant, the Haga Haga Hotel, Trennerys, Seagulls and more.
One venue means you can unpack your suitcase and not have the stress of moving your luggage from race village to race village.
We have developed some exciting accommodation packages, and depending on the option you choose, you can make your own accommodation arrangements. Or you can stay in a 2-man tent (Premium Economy Package - here you will be given 2 tents per team) or a 2-man VIP tent (Business Class Package).
Or you can stay in one of our selected two hotels in Morgan Bay in a nice comfortable bed. These packages range from First Class packages to Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class packages. (Check out the ENTRY PACKAGES section at the top of this web page)
And we have taken care of transport logistics to help if you fly into East London. Check out our LOGISTICS section to find out about Registration, Kit Transport, Bike Transport as well as Shuttles & Airport Transfers.
We have done this to make everything as simple and hassle-free as possible, making your experience more enjoyable.
Every day will be GPS navigation and timing will be done on Strava.
