BLACK HILLS GOLD RUN 2019 June 23-28 2019
« on: February 17, 2019, 06:13:22 pm »
Well folks, here it is!

The Inaugural Black Hills Gold Run!
The first of hopefully many!

This ride is now on the North Central Calendar!
http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=256101&mo=6&tDate=%7Bd%20%272019%2D06%2D17%27%7D


Located in the center of the Black Hills in Hill City, offering easy access to every scenic route and attraction will be our "Rally Central"

Black Hills Trailside Park Resort-----http://trailsideparkresort.com/

We'll have a Cabin with a large covered porch and grill. The owners will allow several tents in the grass surrounding the cabin. If attendance to high enough there is a flat area about 100 yards away with tables and fire pits for us to use.
The cabin has outside outlets folks can use to charge mobile devices.

Cabin is already full but there are others available.

My plans will be to arrive Sunday afternoon 6/23 then depart Friday 6/28.

We'll have an open format. We can group up or do your own thing. We'll supply some route maps for most of the many scenic rides.

We plan on having Coffee and Pastries at the Cabin for Breakfast. You're on your own for lunch and Dinner. Thursday night (Last Night) we plan on grilling burgers and dogs.

There is a Conoco Station/convenience store next door and a Dollar General directly across the street.
We're a 10 minute walk to the center of town.

This is starting to look doable.

Cool.

I'm curious as to how much of an area around the cabin, I did look at the pics. I would be arriving in my Roadtrek campervan with a trailer behind it, all told about 35'. Parking options? I don't want to pay north of $50/night for hook ups and don't need them. I do have a "dummy tent", the cheapest small dome tent I could find that I can set up to look like I'm tent camping.  :great: 

I know I can just call the resort and ask but sometimes I don't like the answer.

I haven't ridden the Hills or been to the Alpine Inn in years. Sounds awesome.

Thanks for doing this and  :beerchug: .

Steve,
There is room around the Cabin for tents but I seriously doubt there will be room by the cabin for your full setup. The folks at the campground are bikers and they're very friendly and accommodating. I'm sure they will understand you situation and work with you within reason.

It took a bit but I am in at campsite 4. Arriving on 24 June, departing on the 28th. Yee. Haw.

I dropped you name and the difficulties melted away, once Sonja talked to the manager. 10% discount with the AARP card to boot.

See ya on the 24th.

I'm departing Thursday for Friday arrival. I plan on staying down by hot springs on BLM land until Monday and then head up to the campground.

On TDY near Almelund Minnesota.

This was a great ride. Weather was excellent throughout the week.
We rode all the good roads. Only issue was Needles Highway was being sealed so we were stopped a few times by a Flagger. Then it was slow going when it was our turn to pass. Other than that, we had great rides.
Iron Mountain
Needle Highway
Devil's Tower
Mount Rushmore
Crazy Horse
Vanocker Canyon Rd
Spearfish Canyon Rd
and several others
