Bicycle South is proud to announce the launch of The Adventure Collective – South Africa’s first community hub for bikepacking and adventure cycling.

We’ve partnered with leading cycling and outdoor brands * to create an exciting rewards programme to fuel your bicycle adventures. By joining the Adventure Collective, you can access incredible industry discounts and monthly giveaways of gear, accommodation and more!

Our online platform provides a place where our community can connect and share their adventures, discover new routes to ride, get advice on gear, or find cycling trips and events to join. Adventure Collective members also receive a subscription to our digital Adventure Dispatch, jam-packed with the very best pedal-powered adventure stories, routes and photography from across the South.

To celebrate our community contributors and route creators we’ll be hosting annual Adventure Collective Awards. To enter, simply join our community and share your routes and adventures.
