RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Black Hills bike trail has earned a spot on an adventure company's top-ten list compiling the perfect paths to ride.
Active travel company Austin-Lehman Adventures gave the Mickelson Trail its number seven position on the list.
The company's European cycling director logged more than 10,000 miles on the seat of a bike to create the list.
The Mickelson Trail received kudos for its blasted hard-rock tunnels and more than 100 converted railroad bridges.
Black Hills Bicycles owner Ian Estes says the honor will bring more recognition to the state and the Black Hills, which provides a beautiful area for riding.
