Sea to Sea

Powered by  

A 3-day navigational team enduro, taking riders on a round trip through the tribal lands of the Transkei of South Africa. 

Who takes part?

Sea to Sea powered by JBFE is designed for the social enduro rider. Does not require any backup drivers as the team from Red Cherry Events handle this all. The event can accommodate teams of 2 – 6 riders with hotels being the choice for accommodation each night. 

We are heading south!

 We utilise 2 great beach hotels, the combination of Trennerys and Kob Inn Beach Resort.

We start our journey at Trennerys Hotel and spend 2 evenings at Kob Inn before returning to Trennerys. 

JBFE Announced as Title Sponsor

In a groundbreaking move, JBFE is set to take the helm as the official title sponsor for Sea to Sea, starting in 2024. This exciting partnership will bring about a rebranding of both Sea to Sea events, now known as Sea to Sea North powered by JBFE and Sea to Sea South powered by JBFE.

8 - 12 May 2024 #EpicAdventure

NO HASSLE PACKAGE | NEW FOR SOUTH

NO HASSLE PACKAGE | NEW FOR NORTH

To help make your journey through the Tribal lands of the Transkei a little easier, we have a #NoHasslePackage built just for that.

For the JHB riders, drop your bike off at RaceWorx KTM and have it sent to the start at Trennerys Hotel.

You then hop on a plane from JHB to East London Airport, and the team from Red Cherry Events fetch you from the airport. After a short transfer to Trennerys Hotel, you are reunited with your bike before your #EpicAdventure begins.

Once finished on Saturday, your bike gets loaded back into the truck, you spend the final night at Trennerys Hotel and we shuttle you back to the East London Airport on Sunday. Your bike will then arrive back at Raceworx KTM by 15 May.

About Sea to Sea

 Sea to Sea powered by JBFE is designed for the weekend warrior, keen on experiencing the Wild Coast and being part of an epic adventure but not in the mood for extreme enduro. 2019 had the largest field of female riders and lots of Dads n Lads. Don’t be fooled, however – it still remains challenging.

Our sister event – Sea to Ski – is made for those serious enduro riders. Click here for more.

The Sea to Sea powered by JBFE event requires no support driver… Red Cherry will provide the back-up vehicle to transport your luggage & fuel each day. This is truly, a ‘hassle-free’ experience.

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 from Trennerys to Kob Inn up the Qora Valleys, from here we do an outride with many options to go Mild and Wild! Day 3 takes the ride on a new route all the way back to Kob Inn. The overnights are made up of 3 Hotel stays and no more tented village with average daily distances of 110kms.

It’s not a race and the challenge is to get through the 3 days together with your partner. For safety reasons, there are checkpoints 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 an electric start.

3 Routes Available

Gold

This route is for those hard-enduro riders who love a little challenge and are prepared to engage in some teamwork to get home. The degree of difficulty is equivalent to a Bronze Roof rider and to jump across to the easier Silver route  is easy.  75% of the Gold and Silver are common, so you are never far from an escape.

Silver

Designed for those weekend warriors who just want to have fun. For many, this is the 1st time event and over the years we have seen our female participation in the Silver class grow. If things get a little too tough and you want to find easier options then you can jump onto the “Adventure” route for a quick way home

Adventure Bikes

This route is designed for those Adventure Bikers and would typically be suitable for the T7’s , 790’s, Africa Twin, etc but there is no reason that those skilled Adventure bikers could not tackle this route on a 1290 or 1250. It’s mostly twisty gravel roads with friendly Jeep track and single track thrown in. Distances are about 120km per day with the Adventure class heading inland to cross the rivers.
