Bicycling/Mountain Biking

Organizations like the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) are taking notice of the biking opportunities in South Dakota, awarding the state one of only two A grades for its trails. With strenuous mountain climbs and grueling road rides, there are plenty of challenging routes to conquer. But laid-back rides on former railroad beds and fun fat-tire outings give everyone the chance to roll at their favorite pace.
