Black Hills Muni Weekend June 25 & 26, 2005

Yes, we have dates. Come to the Black Hills of South Dakota to ride June 25th and 26th.

We had a great time last year. This year will just as fine.

The rides will venture beyond Spearfish Canyon. We’ll ride the Bone Collector–a trail decorated with the remains of lesser riders. The Bone Collector also has North Shore type constructed obstacles.

It needs some work. Anyone want to volunteer ideas for a new image on our home page?

This event was great fun this year. I most definently want to do it again next year.

oy, I’m gonna bump this, because everybody everywhere should come. really.

I’m going to try and make it up…hopefully i’ll have a Muni by than.

I’ve got it marked on the calendar and I’m going to try and make it this year.

Mojoe…thawing out in Iowa

Can anyone give a comparision of this event to MOAB…?
(anyone been to both …?)

i gotta get a new hub/cranks, but if i have a job i can take the time off of, i’m all over it.

It’s a lot smaller than Moab, and it’s not slickrock. Last year’s rides were mountain ridges and pine forests–all single track.

Moab is slickrock on the Slick Rock Trail. The other rides are often on jeep trails that have deep sand–until you get to more slickrock or climb up to a mesa or out of the valley.

This year’s Black Hills Muni Weekend will include the Bone Collector, a steep downhill trail marked by bones and constructed obstacles–rails, stairs, jumps, etc. I hope to post a video soon.

When is the dead line for registration, and does anyone have any pictures of past Black Hills Muni weekends they could post?

Not only is it a booooooring drive …

90 has an awfull warping that causes a ‘bumpy’ ride all the way back.

As long as your going you gotta explore :smiley:
(I’ve been there a few times)
950 miles for me… dunno If I can


I was teh resident trail tester guy for the MUni weekend last year, when it was in Spearfish, a bunch of those are my family’s pics. Anyways, I’m not sure how the rapid city trails are, because I’ve never ridden them. However, it should be great.

As for the comparison to moab: I’m flattered. really. It really is a great weekend though, and I’m happy to see all the people who are planning on coming.

Marshall stangle: I live in spearfish, I’ve seen you at the mall, I think. you were outside the like eye doctor place, it was last summer. You have a summit, no? I think we honked at you. We should hook up and ride sometime.

Nah My Summits Gone I Sold It To A Friend But Yes A Ride Would Be Fun Some Time When The Snow Clears And The Weather Gets Warm We Could Do The Bone Collector Its An Awesome Trail I Think Everyone Would Like It:D

Dave My Advice To You Is Take The Drive Im Sure You Will Like What We Are Setting Up Down Here Its Beautiful Country And Even More Fun To Ride Then To Look At
