The Wild Coast MTB Adventure: May/June 2015

Welcome to the 2015 Wild Coast Adventure, hosted on an annual basis by The Leverage Corporation. We are pleased to announce that this will be taking place in late May until June 2015, and there are some significant developments and changes which will result in an unbelievable experience, and at the same time, cost significantly less than in the past.
The Wild Coast Adventure is a bespoke mountain biking event taking place along the rugged Wild Coast area extending into traditional Pondoland.
Welcome to some of the best riding that you will ever do in your life.


Day 1
On Day 1 you will leave The Wild Coast Sun heading for Port Grosvenor. You will ride along the beach, via Msikaba, and you will have to cross some challenging rivers which need to be negotiated with care. You will then cycle through the breathtaking Mkambati Nature Reserve, where Zebra, Red Hartebeest and Wildebeest are a common sight. History lovers will be intrigued with a number of fateful shipwrecks clearly visible along the coast. The more adventurous may even find a few trinkets or lost treasure along the coastline! Once at Grosvenor, enjoy one of your favourite cold one’s, or enjoy a soothing massage. (Distance approx 55km)


Day 2
On Day 2, you will head out of Port Grosvenor, heading towards Waterfall Bluff. From there it’s off to Msikaba where you spend the night at the luxury camp.
Highlights of the day will include experiencing the spectacular Waterfall Bluff, where fresh water falls directly into the ocean, plus enjoy some whale watching, and passing by the breeding ground of the local Ground Hornbill.
At the finish you can enjoy a few ice cold beers, some tasty food and stunning scenery. (Distance approx 50km)


Day 3
Day 3 sees you heading back to The Wild Coast Sun. But not before cycling inland from the Mkambati River seeing some of the untouched and largely unseen sights of the Transkei region. You will pass the spectacular Nyameni Gorge and falls, on route to the Wild Coast Sun.
You will be presented with one last challenging river crossing, depending on tides of course.
Having completed roughly 160km’s, you will be able to relax and enjoy one last “cold one” with your riding buddies before heading home. (Distance approx 55km)


Quotes from previous riders
“Expect to be surprised at every moment.”
“There is no other ride like this.”
“I wish we could do more of this type of riding.”
“Nothing can top this.”
“When do we do this again?”
The riding is unbelievably breathtaking. As one of our riders recently put it: “I have done almost every ride available in the country, including 4 Tour de Tuli’s, and this is without doubt the best ride of my life.”

 

The Wild Coast Upliftment Programme
This is presented in conjunction with The Leverage Corporation, Sun International, Drifters and the Eastern Cape Government
A percentage of your entry fee is guaranteed to go towards the upliftment of this poverty stricken community.

Our focus will be on sustainable programmes where we look at feeding schemes, education, healthcare, skills development and job creation in the area.
On too many occasions we have seen programmes launched which have failed because of the ineffective management.
Our primary focus is to ensure the transparent management of these funds and the sustainability of the various programmes.
