LaFramboise Island Bike Race
Any style/type bike is ok (except no e-bikes)
Watch The Weather - in case of heavy rain race cancelled
This is a fast, essentially flat terrain course that is not especially tough or difficult, but does have some tight technical turns, sweet stretches, and fun challenging spots. This will be a lap race. One lap = appx 5.75 mi. The course is a long-standing well used trail system with natural compacted dirt/sand/gravel surface combination, a combination of tree-lined, narrow and twisting single-track, and open, wider double-track trail. The course is located on LaFramboise Island Nature Area, at the end of a causeway separating the island from the City of Pierre. It is a natural Missouri River island, owned and managed by the SD Division of Parks & Recreation as a Nature Area. The island and its course are open year-round and require no park entrance license. It's also a great venue for nature viewing, bird watching and easy recreational riding.
