AFRICA Bike Week will cruise into East London on April 27, bringing about 8000 bikers with it.

Sponsored by Harley Davidson, Bike Week is a five-day motorcycle extravaganza that has taken place in Margate for the past six years.

This year, for the first time, Bike Week will be held in East London.

For motorcycle enthusiasts, it promises to be an event like no other. However, bike lover or not, be sure to be blown away by the magnitude of the event.

“East London will be invaded by more than 5000 Harleys and about 3000 other [motor] bikes. It’s going to be huge!” event liaison officer, Peter Bruton, said.

During Bike Week, visitors can expect to indulge in Billy Nel’s Biking Museum, a motorcycle race at the East London Grand Prix Circuit and a massive bike ride past the Esplanade to end it all off.

“There will also be free demo rides, various stalls, live performances from top South African artists and much more,” Africa Bike Week project manager, Carl Frayne, said.

There will also be an opportunity for those brave and eager enough, to learn how to ride a motorbike. “Through various riding schools, we plan to show and teach people how to ride in a safe and controlled environment,” Frayne said.
