Nemo Road Ride

Nemo Road Ride Screenshot Mileage:  Approximately 90 miles


Time:  Approximately 2 hours


Ride description: This ride includes a very picturesque ride through Boulder Canyon between Sturgis and Deadwood along with an awe inspiring trip down Nemo Road to the little resort town of Nemo.  You will also pass through the old mining “Ghost Town” of Roubaix along the route. Norris Peak Road and Rim Rock Hwy will give your riding skills a small test.  There are pit-stop opportunities in the small towns of Blackhawk, Summerset and Piedmont.


Directions:  from Rapid City head east on Hwy 44. From Sturgis take Interstate 90 south or 14A east.


Best thing about this ride: Besides the natural beauty of this ride, there are multitude of places to stop that are just a short detour off of the main ride. Thunderhead Underground Falls (one of the oldest gold mines still open to the public), the unincorporated town of HISEGA and the Strawberry Hill Area are a few of the sites to see.  And last but not least, Mt. Moriah Cemetery, the final resting place of western legends Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and other prospectors, murders and madams.
