Come and spend the day at Bike Fest, you can ride demo bikes - from your dream carbon trail bike through to E-bikes and gravel grinders, the team from Tokai MTB has cut some great single track and obstacles at the festival! Exhibiters also have the widest selection of every component, accessory, part and apparel any cyclist could think of. What makes Bike Fest special is that there are no filler stands - every single brand has been selected because they bring a quality product to the festival.
Full day schedule of activities
For those breaks in-between demo riding, shopping and looking at bikes, the cinema area has an ALL DAY schedule of talks ranging from Nutrition for racing, to indoor training, to theft prevention to even riding up Kilimanjaro or gravel bike touring. The schedule is available online, and has a selection of talks for all guests to enjoy whilst at Bike Fest. In-between talks there are also a number of short cycling films and documentaries being played on the huge outdoor LED screen.
Stay for the movies
As the expo and talks close, spend some time until the films start at 7 pm with your friends having a beer, enjoying the food and then we play two films each evening on our huge outdoor cinema screen. From a selection of the latest mountain bike cinematography and films, through to one about riding steel bikes through the Karoo, it’s an evening out for cyclists like none other in SA.
Dedicated ladies class
For all the ladies keen on learning more about mountain biking, we have the Trail Angels running a dedicated ladies class on Saturday 10th November at 08h00 featuring a variety of talks, riding information, breakfast and a free entry for the day to Bike Fest on Saturday.
