Africa Bike Week™ always has a huge positive impact on the town where it is held. Its family-friendly format and A/B income, older audience boosts the local economy.

ABW not only attracts South Africans from across the country, it brings international visitors – often as part of a longer tour that visits attractions throughout the region. Africa Bike Week  make cities better.

Africa Bike Week™ gives its host location an identity and a style that people rally around, generally increasing tourism and giving the location a unique flair.

Building tourism

Local restaurants, hotels, B&B’s and other tourism attractions boom – and not only during the event. Visitors arrive early and stay a few days.

In addition to bringing in a substantial income over the course of the rally, a large event like Africa Bike Week™ will essentially ‘put small towns on the map’. A good experience in a new destination often brings thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts back for holidays rather than just passing through riding to better known destinations. Bike enthusiasts travel throughout the year!

Africa Bike Week™ is a job creation opportunity – we make a point of supporting local handicrafts, vendors, event suppliers, entertainers, security and other personnel. The event also brings together local residents for family fun, including music, rides, food, giveaways, and more.
