Join Great Outdoor Store and an amazing group of local ladies who vacation on their bikes! They have just returned from riding RAGBRAI.
Jodi Erickson is also going to be at our How To Travel event! Jodi helps to organize, plan, and execute RASDAK –Ride Across South Dakota. RASDAK is a group of volunteers that believes bike tourism is good for our state. Last 5 YRS we have taken cyclists across the great state and this past June we went Rapid City to Sioux Falls with 2 trips through the Badlands. This past June, 200 week long riders from 25 different states met in Rapid City for the start. Each year the organizers of RASDAK look at ways to give back to the communities we overnight in. A Saris bicycle station was given to Rapid City, The Badlands, and Sioux Falls on behalf of the RASDAK cyclists. Stay tuned for year 6 details for June 2018!
We are really excited to also have Kerrie Vilhauer at the How To Travel event! Kerrie is the Liv Ambassador for Sioux Falls. The Liv Ambassador Program is extended to women across the country seeking to develop the women’s cycling community through the Liv brand and their local retailer Spoke-N-Sport in Sioux Falls. Kerrie leads rides, gives informational clinics and acts as a go-to resource for Liv and general cycling related information. Kerrie has participated in many bicycle tours and recently organized a women’s bike packing experience leaving from Sioux Falls traveling to Palisades State Park.
