The Lowveld Dual Bike Adventure (LDBA) has become one of the best Adventure Biking events in SA over the past 7 years and we believe the success is due to the spectacular - and scenic routes of the Mpumalanga Lowveld and the support of all our Sponsors and Participants.

We are excited to announce that our new title sponsor is Mazda Nelspruit! We are looking forward to partner with you and hopefully for many years to come. We would like to thanks RAD Moto for their support since 2014 as title sponsor and the growth of this event is for sure due to their support. We invite all brands and dealerships to get involved as Silver of Bronze sponsors. 

This is the only event in Mpumalanga that caters for all makes of bikes that are registered on the road and we offer technical and non-technical gravel routes that are therefore also pillion-friendly. Two days of great riding on Green -, Red - or Black routes.
LDBA has grown to be the largest Dual Bike Event for all brands in South Africa and as an avid lady-rider I am proud to have converted my passion into a successful business! The event has grown from 90 to 150 entries and we hope to achieve the same or more in 2018!

15 Days to cross 9 000km of desert, mountains and impassable terrain sounds impossible, but that is exactly what a Knysna local has done! Knysna's very own Gerry van der Byl of Thesen Island finished 85th in the motorbike category of the Dakar Rally!
