    2023 M&G Investments PE Plett: Win an unforgettable holiday

    The M&G Investments PE Plett is easily one of the most scenic MTB races on the CSA calendar, but also one of the toughest. With just four days to cover more than 274kms and 4630m of climbing, the route is a challenging feat for even the most seasoned of riders.

    In spite of the enormity of the challenge, there’s something special about the M&G Investments PE Plett that keeps riders coming back year after year. Whether traversing through the lush green forests of the Tsitsikamma National Park, or pushing yourself to the limit for the title of King or Queen of the Mountain, there’s well and truly something for everyone. All of which makes for an unforgettable experience, filled with memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime.

    And after completing this spectacular but gruelling race, there’s no better way to reflect and reward yourself than by taking some time out, relaxing and allowing your body to fully recover. That’s why we are especially pleased to announce that we have one more surprise in store for this year’s riders: we’re offering one lucky participant the chance to win a two-night stay for two people in a luxury suite at the Simbavati Fynbos on Sea Lodge.

    The prize includes free transfers to and from the lodge (including flights from any of the major airports in the country), full board and activities (all meals, scheduled daily activities, self-guided walks and mountain bike trails and use of mountain bikes), and a R250 gift voucher per person per night to spend on extras at the lodge.

    Competition entries are limited to riders participating in the 2022 M&G Investments PE Plett. To enter, simply post your favourite photos from the race each day on either Facebook, Instagram and/ or Twitter and tag:

    • @mandgsouthafrica
    • @simbavaticoastal
    • @pe_plett

    The photo with the most likes, shares and comments combined wins. The winner will be announced on Monday 27 February, 2023.

    Looking for more information about Fynbos on Sea?

    Situated above the quaint town of Sedgefield, along South Africa’s Garden Route, this eco paradise awaits, offering sweeping views over beaches, mountains, lagoons and a fynbos wonderland.

    The nine room lodge and self-contained cottage are perched high on the dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a 600 hectare pristine fynbos reserve. The estate abounds with plains game such as eland, zebra, bushbuck and waterbuck so there is plenty to see in all directions.

    Immerse yourself in scenery to revive both mind and soul. Sedgefield has a tortoise as its emblem to remind visitors of the joy of ‘slow travel’. So meander along the nature trails, lie and watch the clouds or sit with binoculars. Enjoy a picnic or sundowners overlooking Gerickes Point. When you fancy a change of pace, take a mountain bike and choose from a variety of off-road trails. 

    Close to but off our own property, discover lovely fossil dunes and beaches, kayak on the Swartvlei and Sedgefield lagoons, visit the neighbouring protea farm. In summer at low tide, snorkelling in the rockpools can be a treat. More excitement still? This area is a big draw for advanced paragliding. Whilst invigorating sunrises and romantic sunsets will make this an unforgettable stay.
