The Great Midweek
Watching MTB evolving over our 14 years, we feel that mountainbikers seem to enjoy a greater camping experience, camp life and just enjoy riding their bikes. We’ve decided to create a brand new shortened Day 1 of the Midweek event, around 70kms of brand new unexplored trails. This means that riders will register at Em’Seni race village and settle in for 3 nights and 3 days of great riding. It will be on the same dates and very similar to the Great trek. The Great Midweek will no longer be starting at Windmill Farm/Border Post and riding down the Solly’s Folly section but will focus on some brand new trails in the Em’seni area to be exclusively for this event. Those wishing to ride the Solly’s Folly section will still be able to do so by entering the Grindrod Bank Descent.
For Great Midweek riders this will mean:
Day 1 is now 70km instead of 98km
Start and end at Em'Seni Camp Winterton
Brand new day 1 custom built trails for ultimate riding fun
No pre-event accommodation needed - all is included at Em'Seni
No bag transport or car shuttle bookings
One race village
Hassle free Fly in packages from O R Tambo
We look forward to seeing your entry on Monday from 8:00am!

Our 2019 dates are launched! Entries will be opening on the 5th November 2018.

Our 2 day riders conquered the muddy tracks today! Always smiling and never giving up... Everyone was in high spirits and it was a great ending to a very memorable @bergandbush 2018! 📷 @emgatland #bergandbush #mountainbiking #mtb #kzn

Last day of riding at this years Berg & Bush! We’ve had the most amazing time in the sweltering heat and pouring rain! So grateful for the incredible riders over all three events - truly one to remember! #bergandbush #mountainbikingsa #mountainbiking #kzn 📷 @emgatland

Bikes, Berg and beers. That was the story on day 1 of our Great Trek. Riders braved the heat and made it back to Em’seni to enjoy the cool breeze off the Tugela. A blissful day of MTB.

It’s day 1 of the #bergandbush Great Trek. A beautiful day of riding awaits, as does the feeling of being on top of the world when riding Great Wall My China!
