Thanks to some of the most persistent roadside billboards advertising “free ice water” among other things, most people have heard of Wall Drug located in the town of Wall, SD. And just outside of the town lies Badlands National Park, a dramatic and ancient display of sandstone formations.
Any casual or avid biker can get to know both during the Wheelin’ to Wall recreational ride (not a race) event that takes place every September on National Public Lands Day. Event headquarters are in Wall, SD.
Distances cater to all interests and abilities with courses on pavement 9, 29 or 38, or a gravel (mixed surface) for 35 or 68-mile ride. All courses are fully supported with aid stations and SAG support. Shuttle service is available. Bring your friends or make new ones, and behold the best of the Badlands. E-bikes are welcome on all courses. Continue to be a part of South Dakota history. WHEELIN’ TO WALL is the only annual cycling event to be held in the South Dakota Badlands.
Charon Geigle, Event Director, is a cyclist, runner, trap shooter and longtime resident of Wall, SD. She invites you to come play in her backyard. “We may be out in the middle of nowhere, but this nowhere is a beautiful place to be.”
