    Rapid City, SD, bike-friendly?

    I was delivering here today and rode from the Windmill T/S over to Rushmore Mall and whatnot.
    No bike lanes anywhere and people act like they've never seen a bicycle before.
    Anyone who lives in this area could probably tell me different though.
    That way, I could decide whether or not to waste time there again or not.

    You ought to ride up through Spearfish Canyon. I also rode from Spearfish to Devil's Tower in Wyoming. I love riding out there. I have not ridden my recumbent in that area, only rode out there when I had my rode bike. I have yet to ride in a more beautiful area in the continental U.S.

    As far as riding in Rapid City, no I never did. Where I did ride though I would recommend it to anyone.

    that's funny... "bike -fiendly."
    "Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world". ~Grant Petersen

    Cyclists fare best when they recognize that there are times when acting vehicularly is not the best practice, and are flexible enough to do what is necessary as the situation warrants.--Me

    My fingers must be weak.
    I meant "friendly", but I guess it could also be a harbinger of sorts.

    Would you like me to change the title or keep it fiendish?
