Plett, set in the iconic Garden Route, is the new carbon of MTB event destinations. Single track, jeep track, farm road or forest canopy, when it comes to grinding gears, Plett is the place to do it. Get ready for a ‘TNT’ (Trail Not Tar) extravaganza! The Plett MTB Festival offers the whole family an opportunity to get involved in the fastest growing sport in Africa. Three days of nothing but mud, sweat and gears, and of course more fun than you can shake a stick at, will see you spinning your cogs through farm lands and along coastlines.

Simply load the bikes and bring along the whole family for an event so exciting, you’ll be giddy for days.
So, what’s the plan, Stan? For our inaugural event, we are taking riders through the verdant wonderland that is Cairnbrogie Dairy Farm. From cow pat grasslands, to the ancient forests of MTO and SanParks, there is no lack of breathtaking scenery or variety. Focused on the family as a whole, means that there will be plenty to do for young and old. Delicious food aplenty, Fisanthoek Brewing thrilling all with a tasty tipple or three and the little ones enjoying a little challenge of their own at the Cairnbrogie pump track, will see this event calling you back for more.
