15 – 18 May 2024

Welcome to the most unique race on South African soil

Thubeni is home to the unbelievable Transkei Trek. This 3-day mountain bike journey uses the Kob Inn as a base and has riders doing a clover leaf route over 3 Days.

The Wild Coast – with the coastline being the property of nature conservation – has to be one of the most beautiful, pristine coastlines in the world and the 3 days will see teams and solo riders visit the Beecham Woods, Manubi State Forest and the Shixini River.

While the distances each day are “short”, it’s no walk in the park. We ride mainly on cattle paths and gravel roads. The climbs are steep and you might need to walk here or there. But that’s a small price to pay for going where few bikes have gone before. Learn more about the routes by clicking here.

Watch Each Days’ Highlights From 2023

What riders have said:

“You have to experience this for yourself.”

“Dropped off into a parallel universe… then carried on.”
