for the Sturgis Rally, Right Now is Best in the Black
Nothing compares with riding during the Sturgis Rally,
of course. You can wind through the twisting roads
of the Black Hills. And if you choose, you can be
surrounded by hundreds of thousands of bikers. In
fact, even if you don't choose, sometimes you're surrounded
by hundreds of thousands of bikers at the Sturgis
But outside of that event, our pick for the neatest
time to bike the Black Hills is right now - all of
September and early October.
Autumn is in the air just about as soon as the Sturgis
Rally ends. By September, it's here in full swing.
The days are growing noticeably shorter at this northerly
latitude. The leaves are turning even as we speak.
Ground cover vines are red and some of the other plants
The peak of the autumn season will arrive the first
week in October. That's traditionally the best for
color. This year may be a bit sooner than that. The
dry weather stresses trees and so the enter dormancy
favorite ride after the Sturgis Rally
places to bike will include Spearfish Canyon. It's
more than 20 miles of big limestone canyon walls where
aspen and birch turn brilliant yellow. Go up Little
Spearfish Creek a ways and stop at Roughlock Falls.
And the stretch of road from Sturgis to Nemo is quite
good, too. Our Sturgis Rally undercover snoops actually
like this time of year best. And with good reason
- the blasts of the northern Rocky Mountain winter
is just around the corner.
