2nd Annual “T.O.U.R.“ Ride

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip has announced that the 2nd Trike Owners United Ride (T.O.U.R.) will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 6 during the annual Sturgis Rally. This free all-trike event is sponsored by Roadsmith Trikes  and will include a 50-mile self-guided ride through the scenic Black Hills before heading to the Buffalo Chip for a custom trike show and private reception. The T.O.U.R. event is open to all makes and models of trikes. Riders may pre-register for the event at www.buffalochip.com/TOUR.

“The Trike Owners United Ride allows trike riders from around the world to come together to celebrate the freedom and camaraderie shared by those who travel on three wheels,” says Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “We couldn’t be more excited to again welcome trikers home to the Buffalo Chip by hosting this distinctive event.”

The T.O.U.R. ‘trikers’ will depart from the Main Street in Hill City, South Dakota and ride 50-miles through the scenic highways of the Black Hills on a self-guided ride that includes Vanocker Canyon and culminates with a trike procession through the Buffalo Chip grounds  leading to a private T.O.U.R. reception at the Chip’s Russ Brown Events Center.

This T.O.U.R. reception gives the ‘trikers’ an opportunity to spend socialize with hundreds of fellow 3-wheeler enthusiasts and enjoy free hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment. There will also be door prizes, a custom trike show, plus full access to famed motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter’s Buffalo Chip’s Motorcycles as Art exhibition.

“This year’s T.O.U.R. event promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s, with more trikes, more prizes and more fun,” says Roadsmith General Manager, Doug Lindholm. “We’re proud to work with our friends at the legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip to sponsor this event for the second year in a row.”

“The T.O.U.R. event gives trike owners the opportunity to experience and share with others our passion and love for the open road and the freedom it instills,” says 2013 T.O.U.R. participant, Paul Marquardt. “I thoroughly enjoyed last year’s ride from Hill City through some of the most picturesque parts of the Black Hills to the Buffalo Chip, and I can’t wait for another memorable event this year.”

Participants of the T.O.U.R. event can also take in additional Buffalo Chip events on Aug. 6, (including that evening’s performance by Florida Georgia Line) by purchasing campground admission passes.
