Summer may be ending, but the weather is still perfect for motorcycle riding. Fall is an excellent time to explore the Black Hills on your bike. The tourists have (mostly) left and it’s still warm outside.
Some of the best fall bike runs in the Black Hills include Needles Highway, Vanocker Canyon, Spearfish Canyon and Iron Mountain Road. You can also enjoy a lengthier ride out to Devil’s Tower or through the Badlands. Traffic slows down during the fall allowing for a more leisurely ride through our beautiful attractions. The prairie grasses are long and soon, the leaves will begin their color changes. We’ve been blessed these past several years with a respite from the pine beetle infestation, so the ponderosa pines of the Black Hills are dark evergreen as they should be.
