Alongside the popular attractions that have made the South Coast Bike Fest™ (#SCBF19) Africa’s biggest biking and music festival – visitors can look forward to even more high-fuelled action with a host of new activities planned for the 2019 edition. The annual event, presented by Ugu South Coast Tourism and powered by Gearhouse, will take over the coastal town of Margate from 26 to 28 April.

“We will be extending the South Coast Bike Fest™ event site by 1 kilometre, as well as growing the festival footprint by moving into the hinterland,” said event organiser, Vicky Wentzel. “This will give visitors an even greater opportunity to experience more of the incredible KwaZulu-Natal South Coast while also opening up the event to the wider community.”

New attractions
