Bike Rally - On to the Big Horns
a side excursion during the Sturgis Bike Rally you
may want to consider a ride to the Big Horn Mountains
in Wyoming. It's a fairly straight shot from Devils
Tower, through God-forsaken Gillette, and on to Buffalo,
Whereas the Black Hills are enchanted mountains, the
Big Horns are more powerful and colossal. They have
glaciers and snow and all the good stuff the big mountains
have. Cloud Peak Wilderness lies at its heart.
the Wyoming Badlands at the Sturgis Bike Rally
stretch of Wyoming from before Gillette clear on over
to the Big Horns is part of the Wyoming Badlands.
It is fascinating for some bikers at the Sturgis
This part of Wyoming is windswept and serene. It's
full of sage brush and jackrabbits. And it's barren
of water and people. Badlands to some, heaven to others.
In any event, in this side trip from the main Sturgis
Bike Rally you'll feel like you're part of a Western
move. And you'll wonder how people crossed it on foot
and on horse. It's an unforgiving place for those
who make mistakes.
Test at the Sturgis Bike Rally
this little excursion from the Sturgis Bike Rally,
once you get to Buffalo, Wy., the environment changes
fast. It's a climb going up over the pass to the west.
You can test the Harley at more than 10,000 feet elevation
after going up mile after mile. It's colder for sure.
And there is a good chance you'll be able to pick
up some snow, depending on how much fell last winter.
It's worth a visit, or to ride through while coming
or going from the Sturgis Bike Rally.
