The DakAL is a 900 mile motorcycle adventure loop through western South Dakota. The loop ride concept provides no backtracking of previously ridden terrain and you eventually end just where you started.
Convenient starting/ending points are: Edgemont, Hot Springs, Hill City, Custer, Savoy, Belle Fourche, Buffalo and Sturgis. This route provides an immense diversity of riding surfaces and visual delights.
The inaugural ride with 21 riders from around the country was completed on July 12, 2013. The DakAL received rave reviews from all riders and left them wanting more.
The final GPS tracks have been posted. These tracks are available, at no charge, for all responsible riders to enjoy. The Dakota Adventure Loop is made possible by the work of the SD Trails Development Corporation, a non-profit, 501c3. All work is done by volunteers and no one receives any compensation for work provided. Contributions are welcomed and needed to continue this project. All contributions are tax deductible and may be sent to: SD Trails Development Corporation, 23762 Pine Haven Dr., Rapid City, SD 57702 or just click HERE.
