Adventure motorcyclists have a new event to look forward to. The Plett Adventure Bike Week will take place from Saturday 26th April to Friday 2nd May 2014. With Plettenberg Bay so conveniently located to some of the best riding terrain in South Africa including several iconic routes and passes such as the Baviaanskloof, the Prince Alfred Pass, the Montagu Pass, the Swartberg Pass (and the ride into Die Hel) to name but a few, Plett is the ideal location as the base for Adventure Bike Week.
Plett Adventure Bike Week welcomes all riders and all brands of adventure bikes. The nerve-centre of Plett Adventure Bike Week will be an exhibition area where vendors and manufacturers will be able to exhibit and sell their Adventure-biking offerings. The exhibition area will also serve as a meeting point for riders wanting to go out on one of the many routes in the area. “We have had a very encouraging response to the concept of Adventure Bike Week from the major manufacturers, who have indicated that they will be on-site to exhibit their latest models,” says Lance Rothschild, Creator and Organiser of Plett Adventure Bike Week. “We are also speaking to several vendors who have various offerings for adventure bikers and we will accommodate them at the exhibition area too.”
“We’re excited to introduce a new event to the Plett Tourism calendar, and we believe that Plett Adventure Bike Week will attract a large number of people to our beautiful area” says Peter Wallington, Chairman of Plett Tourism. “There’s so much more to Plett than people initially imagine and we are confident that visitors will have a fantastic time here.”
The Plett Adventure Bike Week offers an excellent opportunity for clubs to host annual gatherings, as well as for individual riders to gather and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals. More importantly, Plett Adventure Bike Week offers the opportunity for Adventure Bikers to enjoy their bikes in the terrain for which they were designed.
There is an abundance of accommodation in Plettenberg Bay with options ranging from Camping and Backpackers, to Caravan Parks, to Bed and Breakfasts to Hotels and even to home and apartment rentals. Plett also offers an abundance of activities and entertainment and there are many options to occupy non-biking family members and riders who want to do something other than biking whilst in the area.
A website for Plett Adventure Bike Week is already in process and details will be announced in due course. A Facebook Group has been started (Plett Adventure Bike Week) and a Twitter Stream (@PlettAdvBikeWk).
