Biker Presidents’ Meet and Greet Hosted at South Coast Bike Fest 2017

Forming the perfect setting for the South African biker community to network and exchange ideas, the South Coast Bike Fest #SCBF2017 is hosting a VIP Presidents’ Meet and Greet evening on Friday 28 April at the Margate Hotel Pool Deck.

“The bike fest is focused on providing a fun environment where people can enjoy quality food, music and all things bike-related,” said event organiser, Vicky Wentzel. “But more than this, the bike fest is a fantastic opportunity for the various biking clubs to get together, share stories and generally exchange useful information about the various aspects of biking.”

To further facilitate the joining of the biking communities, the South Coast Bike Fest is hosting the VIP Presidents’ Meet and Greet, allowing attendees to relax over a beer while enjoying a catered spitbraai.
