LaFramboise Island Mountain Bike Race

Pierre, SD

Saturday May 30, 2009


In case of heavy rain race cancelled

8:30 – 10:00 Registration

10:15 Race Meeting

10:30 Race Begins

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.
