What is “The Tour”?


Same route and vibe, with no racing.

– Open start chute, start anytime between 8 and 9am each day
– Finish before the sun goes down.

No timing

Designed to purely be for the social riders who want to take on the ride with no pressure to race,

The tour will take place from 23 Feb – 27 Feb 2024 and follow the same route as “The Ride”.


The 2024 edition of the M&G Investments PE Plett is taking on a slightly different format to the previous 10 years of the event where our riders will be starting their journey from Kurland in the Crags and ending in J-Bay.

After plenty of feedback from our riders over the years regarding the stages of the journey they enjoyed the most we’ve decided to spend the first 2 stages of the 2024 edition exploring the Tsitsikamma Forest.

This means our riders will enjoy the comfort of the same race village for 2 nights in a row at Storms River before moving on the 3rd at Assegaaibosch.

Whether you’re a dedicated racer or a relaxed rider this is a spectacular journey you shouldn’t miss. Entries are limited to 250 riders for “The Ride” and 150 for “The Tour“. This prestigious event has sold out for the last 5 years in a row, so don’t wait too long in securing your entry.

For the 2024 edition, we’ve also introduced 3 entry options so our riders can decide which option suits them best.
