Sea to Ski 2018

The Sea to Ski motorcycle enduro starts the sea of the Wild Coast and ends at Tiffindell Ski Resort. It is a team event made up of 2 riders and a back up driver. It’s not a race and the challenge is to get through the 3 days together with your partner. The ride of 3 days exposes the 60-odd teams to some of the most incredible enduro riding in the world as they navigate their way via GPS across 2 escarpments, flowing tribal land and countless private farms.

The overnights are made up of Hotel stays and tented villages with average daily distances of 140km. For safety reasons there are check points en route and time bars in place. Keeping a steady pace with the occasional stop for a pic or 2 will see you get in safely and in time. It is only suitable for Enduro Bikes, preferably with electric start.

Day 1 takes the riders from Mazeppa Bay straight into the Qora Gorge and the most incredible playground of rocky climbs, cattle paths and sweeping sled tracks. The 1st Refuel outside Willowvale is the gateway to the mighty rivers of the Nquabara and Mbashee Rivers with Collywobbles Hydro Plant being a picture stopper. After reaching the Mbashee we have our lunch stop and a awesome 30km home run into our 1st overnight stop at Clarkebury Mission.

Day 2 is a tough day as we climb out of Clarkebury and into the escarpment.  2017 saw the riders attempt Donkeys Dick in the wet and only 4 teams made it. We are hard at work making the climb more manageable but if rain is on the horizon we will divert through Elephants Trunk.  Once we climb out we are into the Oribi gorge, countless farms and Mondi Forests.  Our overnight at Maclear High School is our steak night and with one day to go … the mood is great.

Day 3 is a shorter day as we wind our way through forests and all the way up the escarpment running parallel to Naudes Nek.   It is the most beautiful day by far and 2018 we may see us return to Big Daddy’s and still climb the wonderful Lehanas Pass into the Karantul Road to Tiffindell.   A great site with the Red Bull Arch on the ski slopes and receipt of your Sea To Ski Finishers shirt.
