Africa Bike Week 2017

Eastern Cape Events

Africa Bike Week™ is an annual event presented by Harley-Davidson® Africa and hosted by Buffalo City Metro. All motorcycle enthusiasts, riders, their families and friends from across South Africa and internationally are invited to attend the biggest free biker bash on the continent. In 2017 we are being welcomed to our new home – the quaint beach town of East London.

Expect great live entertainment, H-D® merchandise,  Free Harley-Davidson®test rides, trade markets, a custom Bike Show where you can see spectacular bikes, a Mass Ride and much more. It’s also a great chance for H.O.G® members to meet and interact with other riders from across the globe. This event is open to bike enthusiasts everywhere, their families and friends from across South Africa and around the world.

The event is not just for H.O.G. members and you don't have to have a Harley Davidson to take part in the fun.
Africa Bike Week is on the main beach road, which will be closed to four-wheeled traffic (except beer trucks!) for the duration, with literally thousands of motorcycles parked mirror to mirror, wearing every maker's badge you've ever heard of and a few you haven't, as their riders stroll up and down, meeting and greeting friends old and new, and admiring the work that has gone into the glittering custom machines that have become the signature feature of Africa Bike Week.

And these are not show bikes; most of them will be on parade for the climax of Africa Bike Week, what is claimed to be the biggest mass ride in Africa on Sunday morning - a ride so big that in Margate the leading riders used to arrive at the end venue, 12 kilometres away, before the last bikes left the start!

What is new, however, is that for the first time, you stand a chance to win a brand new Harley-Davidson when you pre-register for Africa Bike Week 2017 online.

Africa Bike Week 2017 includes:

A festival of music with top bands and live artists including Parlotines, Goodluck, Desmond & the Tutus, Black Byrd, The Muffinz and Jack Parow

Experience the sound and spectacle as thousands of bikes ride through the streets of East London, or even better... get involved.

Two hour, 4 hour and 5 hour pre-approved tours are being arranged by Adventure Focus
