KWA-ZULU NATAL, South Africa - Margate will transform into a motorcycle-friendly town for four days as it gears up for the sixth consecutive Africa Bike Week from May 1-4 2014.   

One of the main attractions is the "Mass Ride" on May 4 2014 where thousands of bikers are expected to ride a 34km circular route.


Harley Davidson will host activities such as a "Jump Start" - a Harley is placed on a stand for people to a ride without worrying about balance. The Harley-Davidson Riding Academy will also engage with those interested in learning how to ride.

Free demo rides will also be available on Harley-Davidson models and a Ride-In-Bike-Show will allow anyone to register their customised bike in the competition.

Local performers will keep the crowd entertained and you can expect artists such as Dozi, Nova Rise, Madison Band and DJ Fistaz.
