The Lowveld Dual Bike Adventure (LDBA) has become a household name in Adventure Biking in SA over the past 4years and I believe the success is due to the spectacular - and scenic routes of the Mpumalanga Lowveld and the support of all our sponsors and participants.

RAD Moto has confirmed to be our main sponsor again for 2016! We would like to thank Dave Griffin and his staff for believing in this event and for all their support. We look forward to be POWERED by RAD!

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.

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 (2012), 127 (2013), 141 (2014) and 151 entries during 2015!

The Prawn Run has always been a highlight and will offer great food and accommodation once again and if we are lucky the Moz Government will issue us a permit again for a beach ride and braai at the Nkomati River mouth! We can accommodate up to 40 riders with two routes taking us to Marracuene, Macaneta. The new venue of Tan n Biki seemed to be very popular and we will return there this year! Limited space!
