STURGIS, S.D., March 27—The Sturgis Buffalo Chip has announced that its Trike Owners United Ride (T.O.U.R.) will return for a second year on Wednesday, Aug. 6 during the 74th annual Sturgis Rally. The annual all-trike event is sponsored by Roadsmith Trikes, and it includes a 50-mile, self-guided ride through the scenic Black Hills leading to a custom trike show and private reception at the Buffalo Chip. The T.O.U.R. event is free of charge and 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,” said 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. ride departs from Main Street in Hill City, S.D., and takes trikers on ride through the scenic highways of the Black Hills before concluding at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. The ride culminates with a trike procession through the Buffalo Chip grounds that leads to a private reception at the Chip’s Russ Brown Events Center.
“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,” said 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 reception will also feature full access to the Buffalo Chip’s Motorcycles as Art exhibition, curated by famed motorcycle photographer, Michael Lichter.
