Top 10 Things To Do At Sturgis

Sturgis is absolutely filled with organized rides. Some are guided; others self-guided. Regardless, they give riders the opportunity for a shared riding experience. Two of the best known rides at Sturgis took place on the same day, this year. The Legend’s Ride, which celebrates its ninth year, is a self-guided ride that begins in Deadwood before winding its way 50 miles through the countryside to the Buffalo Chip. The Legend’s Ride is known for the luminaries who attend the event and the money raised for various charities – more than $500,000 to date.

The 14th-annual Mayor’s Ride featured former Superbike racer Ben Bostrom as the master of ceremonies and leader of the group ride from Sturgis to Custer State Park. Lest you think that these rides are only for cruisers, Ben and Eric Bostrom led the third Boz Bros Benefit Ride that begins at the Sturgis Dragway before its own 50-mile ride through the Black Hills.
