Roadtrips and Excursions

Open Roads ..... Endless Opportunities


Roadtrip by Southern Cross Rides is a collection of budget-friendly day, overnight and weekend motorcycle rides aimed at providing local motorcyclists and their partners exciting and unusual travel opportunities in the company of fellow enthusiasts.

Each Roadtrip has been specially created to give you the most exciting and rewarding biking experience in limited time.  They have been developed to encourage you to look a little further than the usual weekend runs and rallies, and to give you the opportunity to experience other parts of this great biking destination.

At Roadtrip, we believe in helping you rediscover just why you love biking so much, so why not join us on our travels to some of southern Africa's most popular, unusual and sometimes, unexpected destinations...

Most of our rides depart from Johannesburg, but we invite riders from other parts of the country to join in.  We can arrange bike transport from any major centre at reasonable rates, and our Fly/Ride packages provide real value-for-money adventures.  For those that prefer to ride to the starting points, additional en-route options are available.

Here are just a few upcoming rides, but watch our regular schedule for more information on the rides that are being offered! Space is limited on these road trips, so don't put-off reserving your space.

Xmas in June

This is a fun weekend complete with a gift swap for those that miss sitting around a roaring log fire, sipping festive drinks and watching snow fall (hopefully).   Our annual ride will take us to eSwatini this year.  If you enjoy a weekend of relaxation in the Mountain Kingdom, this is just for you.


Vitamin Sea Roadtrip

24 - 27 September 2020

After a cold winter, what could be better than a long-weekend trip to the warmth of northern KZN and perhaps a day on the beach at Ponto do Ouro - Mozambique or St Lucia?  Our road trip takes us to Mkuze for a weekend of relaxation with optional day rides to the Battlefields of Natal or the beach at Ponto or St Lucia. This is a very popular ride (Passports are required), so get your name down now!
