Rhodes is the home of three significant sporting events, the oldest of which is the Rhodes Trail Run. This is a 52 km event held in the heart of winter which starts and ends in the village.

Billed as "The Most Extraordinary Mountain Biking Race in Africa", the Rhodes Mountain Bike Challenge, held in October each year, is an 82 km grind. It follows the road to Naudesnek and then off past the Cairntoul Stock Theft Unit Police Station, along the Lesotho border, the Tiffindell Ski Resort and back to Rhodes via the Carlisleshoek Pass.

The Bell's Wild Trout Festival is based in Rhodes and is organised by the Wild Trout Association. Up to 80 participants fish for three days on the 180 km of running water which is within an hours drive of the village.

A number of 4 x 4 vehicle routes are available in the area, some of which traverse private property and may require permits for their use. Using Rhodes as a starting and end point, day trips of varying length can be planned depending on requirements and time available. Being off the beaten track, it is important to be prepared as the weather can and does change at short notice.

Rock art by members of the various San communities abounds in sandstone valleys in the area.
