Regina --> Deadwood: Advice?

Hi all,

I'm riding my V-Strom from Regina, Saskatchewan to the Black Hills this weekend and have 1.5 days to ride the hills. Going solo, probably staying in Deadwood and Mt. Rushmore is a must-see for me... but looking for advice on the best roads and stops for local colour and fun spots to eat/drink. Thanks for the help! (also posted in Dakota's forum)

Hey I'm in the city that rhymes with fun too!

Did the same trip a couple of years ago but driving (a convertible so it was OK)
Really enjoyed Deadwood, see the reenactment of the Wild Bill Hickock shooting, it's fun. The bus tour up to Mt. Moriah Cemetary is good too.

Rushmore is fine, but I enjoyed Crazy Horse Memorial way more. Even got to see a blast!

But you cannot miss these roads down there. I had the Mustang going pretty quick and was longing for my bike at every turn:

From Custer go E on 16 and 16A, head N on 16A to 244, W on 244 to Rushmore, continue W on 244 to 16, S on 16 a bit to 87, follow 87 E to 753, S on 753 back to 16A and then W back to Custer. You will have been on Iron Mountain rd. and Needles Highway.

You can thank me later.

I went in 2012. Excellent place in the hills.

The nightmare was the highway to get there. Fracking in western ND has made the place crazy on the highways. I had to stop several time to breath normally, get my heart rate down and check the shorts!

My pics are here:


If you plan on camping check out this place:

http://www.steelwheelcampground.com/

You can pitch the tent under a wooden canopy to keep you out of the sun and rain/hail and the facilities are very nice, the cost is reasonable and the location is a good spot to be able to hit all the good rides.



If you would like the GPX files with the roads & waypoints, let me know.

Have fun!
