Mountain biking in the Black Hills of South Dakota

One of the few trips we took our bikes on. If you read the Vanabode book you will find out why they are more trouble than they are wroth. Here though we had a blast, article includes trail information and pictures. Mountain bike (n). A sturdy bicycle distinguished by wide tires and horizontal handlebars, often used for off-road cycling. Mountain biking is that it need not take place on a mountain. We rode for six days of the two weeks we were in South Dakota.

Picture of Jason riding down a large hill

We coasted down this rolling hill for about 3/4 of a mile through deep grass. This was fun and fast.

We shared the Centennial hiking/biking path with it's residents.

Picture of Jason being chased by a buffalo at Bear Butte Park

This is Jason running as fast as he can because the young bull buffalo is charging full blast towards him. The bison did not stop till he was right up against the tiny barbed wire fence at which point he reared up on two legs as if to jump over. We have no doubt that he could if he really wanted to.
