Cycling through the spectacular formations and scenery in the Badlands
Take a step back in time and discover Badlands National Park… imagine an underwater world forming into a lush forest and then into the rugged water and wind swept land it is today. Enjoy the wildlife that lives here today and discover the amazing life and unimaginable animals that once called this land home.
On this tour, we bike the moderate 22-mile paved scenic drive through heart of the badlands pinnacles. There are only a couple of short steep hills on the breathtaking ride. There is an option to bike 40 mile loop is a longer ride is desired. After the ride, we enjoy a picnic lunch at the Visitor Center and make a stop at Wall Drug and the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site if desired.
Our bikes are really nice 2018 Norco bikes, with both road style and flat bars available. We also supply water bottles and helmets. This tour can do rides as short or as long as desired (seriously from a couple miles to a century).
