Tour de Plett MTB race moves to Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival weekend in October 2015

The increasingly popular Tour de Plett MTB Race will take place on Saturday 10 October 2015 – at the same time as the Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival, which takes place on 9-10 October.

The Tour de Plett consists of an 85km Marathon, 55km Half-marathon and a 20km Fun Ride. The Marathon event is part of the SWD Marathon Series. It’s a spectacular route with stunning scenery, challenging climbs and both Jeep and Single-track rides. All profits from the event go towards funding of the Kwano Cycling Academy (See ).

Plett Tourism manager Cindy Wilson-Trollip said the inclusion of the Tour de Plett in the October holiday period, at the same time as the Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival, the Sasfin Plett Winelands Golf Classic, which takes place on 8 October, and the Robberg Xpress Trail Run on 10 October, created compelling reasons for people to visit Plett.
