Coffee Bay is home to the unbelievable Transkei Trek … a 3 Day stage Race that uses the magnificent Ocean View Hotel as a base and has riders doing a perfect Clover Leaf route over the 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 visit the beaches of Mapuzi, Mdumbi, Lapanzi and most definitely the magnificent Hole-in-the-Wall.
It is a Team of 2 event and the route will be a combination of single and jeep track with some really cool beach traverses over all 3 days. Our intention is to showcase the Wild Coast and create great memories whilst also affording riders the opportunity to chill out on the beach. Daily distances will not exceed 50km and elevation will be kept under 1000m.
The local community are hard at work on the existing walking paths to make them MTB friendly. The local residents use these tracks to fetch water so expect great river crossings and epic downhill forest sections.
We have tailor-made packages that will suit everyone’s pocket with the pricing being dependant on the accommodation options you choose. All accommodation is twin-room sharing. The Gold package hotels are all in close proximity, the furthest away being the Hole-in-the-Wall Hotel (only 9km away).
