    South Dakota has sweet singletrack.

    The Centennial trail #89 runs north from Wind National Cave through the Black Elk Wilderness and past Mt. Rushmore through the Black Hills to Bear Butte. 111 Miles of trail, most of which is pedal friendly.




















    It was fun. Bicycles are fun. Guerilla Gravity bikes are mega-fun.

    I will happily ride (fall through the woods) any weekend there is simian interest.

    behind you, don't wait up.
    That looks awesome. But, how are you riding that section near Rushmore that cuts through the black oak wilderness?

    I didn't, I rode only from Samelius TH to Alkali Creek. The Tatanka referenced at the bottom is 83 miles total adding in a road rd from Mt Rushmore to the Big Pine TH. Next Time I will drop in at Big Pine and add another 3.4 mi of singletrack.

    The "goods"as dispersed throughout with it the last 30 miles or so being particularly sweet.

    Awesome! I didnt stop for pictures after the 30 mile mark, so the awesome 18" singletrackness that leads into a mini dirt merchant as the trail has motorized use on sections from pilots knob past Dalton Lake TH is sick as well as the final 10 ish miles of rolling off camber up and down is truly cherry on top of an epic ride.
