Not your typical bike show, with a bunch of stands strewn about and no where to actually ride, the Africa Cycle Fair, will feature three test tracks of differing disciplines for people to try out their own and demo bikes.

The road track will be a 4km closed loop on smooth tar with some sharp corners and paved strips. The mountain bike track will be 5km featuring rough terrain, a rock garden, bermed and off camber corners and up and downhill single track. I wouldn't get too excited to test out the track, it being at a cycle fair, but it should be good fun messing about on some of the demo bikes.

The last track will be for cyclocross. It will incorporate parts of the MTB track as well as barriers on the field to keep it close to all the action. The cyclocross track will also be used for an event hosted by Hunter Cycling, with both CX and MTBs being allowed to race.

Alongside active fun will be a large 3 000m² marquee that exhibitors will be able to show off their goods. You can expect to see PYGA Industries, Ride Magazine, Qhubeka, Tread, Cape Cycles, Cube Bikes SA, GoPro, and Merida and Titan to name a few.

The Hub will be there mixing it up with all the exhibitors and showgoers in the main hall. Do stop by and have a chat with us, we would love to meet as many of you mad hubbers as we can. If you can't make it, then watch out for our coverage of the fair right here on The Hub.

Food and drink will be there a plenty, with a 1 000m² tent dedicated to the great food and drink. And don't worry, there will be beer, even of the craft variety.

All in all, it's set to be a great weekend of two-wheeled fun. Entry is R60 per person, and can be purchased either via Webtickets or at the gate. Kids under 12 get in for free, so bring the whole family.
