Head for the Hills is hosted at ADA Leeuwenkloof on 9 – 10 April. Conceived to become the premier annual lifestyle event for BMW Motorrad SA, it combines the best of global BMW Motorrad events; Motorrad Days and Pure & Crafted and will be the must-attend event of the summer.

Gates open at 10 a.m. on Saturday 9th April and, right from the get-go, there will be some incredible activations in which to take part.

There will be motorcycle test rides, 4X4 demonstrations and competitive events open to all attendees.

At the same time, South Africa’s 2022 GS Trophy Team will be undergoing some serious training, where the rest of us can reflect on how bad our own skills are while marvelling at the skills of the team that is hoping to bring the trophy back to South Africa once again.

After lunch on Saturday 9th, the King/Queen of the Hill challenge is one for anyone who thinks they are good enough. BMW Motorsports will also be on the skid pan giving demonstrations.
