Down To The Prairie On Bikes

Tuesday, September 28th, Custer SD to Edgemont SD: On the third day of clear blue skies and low humidity, we biked 44 miles, mostly downhill, which was a good thing, since there was little shade for the last twenty miles and a temperature around 90 degrees. We passed prancing deer, wild turkeys, loads of grasshoppers, but no cyclists, along the path. Off the Mickelson Bike Path, at a bar in Pringle, pop. 113, the bartender cheerfully filled our water bottles. (To be continued)

It looks like you had the road to yourselves. What great weather for biking!

I wonder how you get back to your car after your bike rides.

Perfect weather, perfect bike path. Saw only deer and wild turkeys on the last 44 miles.
