The Investec Great Kei Trek Overview

Welcome to what was once mountain biking’s best kept secret. The Investec Great Kei Trek.


The scheduled dates for 2022 are Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May.


The Investec Great Kei Trek, is a 3-day, 180km race/ ride. A race that isn’t a race. A 2-rider team, or individual race, with different entry package options.


And have we made some major changes for this year. Starting with the route, we have a few surprises in store for 2022.


Once again, Morgan Bay will be the home base of The Investec Great Kei Trek.


That’s right. As with 2021, the entire event will be based at the stunning seaside village of Morgan Bay, just an hour’s drive up the coast from East London.


Three days, three different rides, but one venue. Morgan Bay.


Three days, riding on privately owned farms, riding into the Old Transkei, crossing the Kei River Ferry, watching the sea break onto the cliffs of Morgan Bay. Exciting visits will include the brand new Bayview Farm,  Oppie Plaas, a charming country restaurant, the Haga Haga Hotel, Trennerys, Seagulls, the now infamous Bushpig, the Kei Mouth Hotel, the Shed and more.


One venue means you can unpack your suitcase and not have the stress of moving your luggage from race village to race village.


We have developed some exciting and uncomplicated accommodation packages, and depending on the option you choose, you can make your own accommodation arrangements. 

Or you can stay in a Standard 2-man tent (You will be given 2 tents per team, or 1 per solo entry) or a 2-man VIP tent, with 2 stretchers and 2 camp chairs (Teams of 2 riders only). 


At this stage, the Morgan Bay Hotel is fully booked, but there are limited accommodation options available at the Mitford Hotel. To find out more, mail us for info or to book your room on greatkeitrek@icon.co.za


There are also over 400 beds available in the various houses, whether you rent a house or book a B&B.


And we have taken care of transport logistics to help if you fly into East London. Read more to find out about Registration, Kit Transport, Bike Transport as well as Airport Transfers


We have done this to make everything as simple and hassle-free as possible, making your experience more enjoyable.


Cycling in the Eastern Cape Wild Coast and the Old Transkei is truly something special. Check out the “ROUTE MAP” page under “RACE INFO”.
