Africa Bike Week tour

20 April 2018

South Africa is the most interesting country on the African continent. It is a melting pot of cultures for which South Africa also is named the Rainbow Nation and has a remarkable welcoming society. Crossroads Motortours has been offering unforgettable tours through this fascinating African nation from the very start. Nothing compares to combining the joy of riding a Harley-Davidson® motorbike and taking in the culture and history that makes this country so different.

For the Africa Bike Week™ tour we will maximize this experience by combining our Western Cape Bike Ride with a visit to the Africa Bike Week™ in East London. 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.

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.
