Organized August 2nd by Jay Allen from the Broken Spoke Sturgis Campground to honor Michael Lichter and Sugar Bear , The “Ride To The Ranch” is a special day of activities not to miss when attending Sturgis. The festivities will begin at the Broken Spoke Campground at 1:00pm with a Kick-off Pool Party (including a bikini contest, male pole dancing, German stein holding and more).
Then at 3:00, the bikes will depart for the 25-mile ride (traveling away from the hustle of Sturgis) to a real working ranch. Once there, the ranch owners will grill up lunch and serve ice-cold beverages. As far as activities, you never know what might be planned at the ranch. There are horses to ride, barrel racing (with horses and bikes!), wagon rides and you might even find yourself branding a spring. The ride is open to the public and departs at 3:00pm from the Broken Spoke Campground on 79 North, just in the shadows of Bear Butte. Then it’s back to the Spoke for food, music, beer and more good times, including the grand opening celebration of the Broken Spoke Legends art gallery, located on the 2nd floor of the Broken Spoke Saloon on 79North. The ride is free and anyone can participate.
