Time to go Caribbean

2018-04-19 06:00

THE Margate beach promenade is an ideal venue for the upcoming South Coast Bike Fest 2018 from April 27 to April 30.

The scenic seaside location of the varied retail areas the main stage and bar areas coupled with the colourful coming and going of the thousands of bikers and members of the public all set amongst palm groves and the blue sea creates an almost tropical island feel.

With musical genres to suit all ears (including rock and reggae) within a comprehensive entertainment and bike activity programme, the scene is set for a very festive time. Just an idea — what if locals dressed very beach cum Caribbean style to suit the ambience of the venue — now that would add spice to the vibe menu.

I know of a lot of bikers who will be travelling many hundreds of kilometres to get here, listen to their preferred bands and socialise with fellow bikers and South Africans under the warm April skies. It is an opportunity for South Coasters to show their renowned hospitable personas and for everybody to really enjoy the magic that is Margate.

With the new 2018 version of the Southern Explorer Route Guide now in our Visitor Information Centres, attendees will be able to read up and travel all the nine routes and Great Drives Out in this excellent publication. I know that there are a number of spots outside Margate that are ever popular with the biking fraternity— even as far down as lovely Port Edward. They just love to rev out and chill out on our beautiful coast and in the hilly areas inland.

I’m looking for rasta headgear to get into the swing of things mon!
