Bike Rally Best Big Thing
the Sturgis Bike Rally the Best Big Thing has to do
with Nature - Devils Tower National Monument. Let's
face it, no one comes here for the cultural mystique
of the ballet. The Black Hills are however, a great
place for the outdoors at the Sturgis Bike Rally.

in the tourist business and all the promotions key
on Mt Rushmore. Devils Tower National Monument is
just there - as one of the best visits at the Sturgis

Mount Rushmore. It's big, and will be a highlight
of any visit to the Sturgis Bike Rally.
You can see it off to the north as you bike down the

it doesn't look like much from a distance. But that's
deceiving. The closer you get, the bigger the tower
gets. And when you get right up close to it, Devils
Tower is the most impressive thing in the Black Hills.
Climbers at the Sturgis Bike Rally
It's huge. You understand why it was a magical place
for the Lakota and Cheyenne in the northern Plains.
Legend has it that the vertical cracks were caused
by a giant bear that was trying to climb it.
human climbers go up it. It's a favorite rock climbing
location. As you stand down below, you can usually
spot climbers making their way up the tower.
But it's controversial, too. Devils Tower is considered
sacred by many Indians, and the rock climbing disturbs
some people. It's seen as being an invasion of the
power of the place.
