The Journey

 

Day 1 takes the riders from Hole in The Wall up over Mapuzi to Mtata River Mouth.  We then run the Mtata gorge all the way to Mquanduli and head towards the mighty Mbashee with Collywobbles Hydro Plant being a picture stopper. We stop for lunch at the Mbashee, leaving an awesome 30km home run to our 1st overnight stop at Clarkebury Mission.

Day 2 continues our lateral journey as we make our way to Maclear.  The challenge on this day is known as Elephants Trunk. Riders will need to join forces as they tackle this incredible section. The rewards from the top are truly breathtaking as you look over the wild coast region for the last time. Your journey continues in a North Westerly direction with the comrades who have just helped you conquer the famous Elephants Trunk.  Maclear hostel is the next stop where hot showers, cold beers and plenty of war stories are passed around. 

 

For Day 3 we start with Staircase to Heaven.  Venturing to over 1500m above sea level and ascending through low hanging clouds is a usual experience for the riders on this last day.  With some fast flowing forest sections you arrive at lunch thinking the worst is behind you.  But in true Sea to Ski fashion ... this is far from the case.  Pondos Gate is the last obstacle standing between you and the finish at Tiffindell Ski Resort.  This is our party night, with Prizes & Fines being the order of the night.  Riders depart after a hearty breakfast with a lifetime of memories and new friends made.
