Looks like I'm going to have about a month long window from mid-May through mid-June to take some trips on the Fargo. I'm definitely planning on doing some short tours out of my front door, but I was also thinking about making a road trip to South Dakota to do an out and back on the Michelson Trail. So I had a few questions:
-What's the weather like in that time period?
-What condition is the trail going to be in after the winter? I'm not to worried about it on my Fargo, other than it can obviously slow me down, but my brother may fly out to meet me and we'll need to find him a bike.
-Anywhere to rent a bike for a week or so, preferably with a rear rack so I don't have to play sherpa for all of my brother's stuff.
-Does it matter which end you start from? Either end better to leave a car for several days?
-What side trips off the trail are not to be missed?
Thanks for any info,
