This will be a lap race on essentially flat terrain. One lap = appx. 5.75* miles. The course is a combination of tree-lined, narrow and twisting single-track and open, wider double-track trail. It’s not a really tough or difficult course, but is fast and does have some tight corners and fun, challenging spots. It should be an enjoyable race for riders of all ages and abilities. The course is located on LaFramboise Island Nature Area, at the end of the causeway separating the island from the City of Pierre. It is a natural Missouri River island, owned and managed by the SD Division of Parks & Recreation as a Nature Area. The island is on the Lewis & Clark trail and was visited by Lewis & Clark! The island and its course are also great for nature viewing, bird watching and easy recreational riding.

The US Forest Service extended the comment period for the proposed travel management here in the Black Hills. Take a look at the alternatives and make a comment by May 18th. Google Black Hills National Forest Travel Management. The Forest Travel management issue really is huge. Get familiar with the issues and make an imformed comment. Once the new rules are established it will be hard to close them! Next lesson learn to paste links into this window...
Yearning for some more dry singletrack. Rode Lookout Mountain today and it was good, to be back in the dirt, where my heart is at. The trails are old and well worn, and drain well in the spring. A new fresh loop would be nice around the summit.
We need to organize some trail work and finish Hopa Mesa Loop.
I'm Rapha here!
