The Iconic Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
Start Living the Dream as we leave Denver for a day's ride up to Hot Springs, South Dakota. We’ve staged over a week's worth of some of the best riding available in the USA, including a stop at Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. See and feel the excitement of riding through the Badlands, over Iron Mountain Road to Mt Rushmore. Learn about the ongoing work on the Crazy Horse Memorial. Spend time in Sturgis, Deadwood and hike to the many waterfalls of Spearfish Canyon. On top of all that, see the buffalo roam (I have had one nudge my bike!). Plus, there’s so much other wildlife in Custer National Park. Finish off the week with a ride through Rocky Mountain National Park and spend a night in the Rocky Mountains. Ride to Morrison and see the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater.
*** For less crowded riding, we offer the same tour before the Sturgis Rally, July 12th - 18th. ***
Sturgis was always on my bucket list. Going there with Living The Dream made it an unforgettable experience. They knew all the local spots and places to go. Jacob Garn

Below is your daily itinerary. You will see the planned route as well as what you will see on any given day of the tour. Please be advised that this itinerary can change due to weather, traffic, hotel availability, or other issues.
- Leave Denver for a day ride up to Hot Springs through the Pawnee National Grassland with the Rocky Mountains in view to your west. We move over the plains of Wyoming and into the foothills of the Black Mountains. This day’s ride is more about getting there, but there’s still a lot to enjoy along the way.
- From Hot Springs, ride to the southern entrance of Badland National Park. Circle through the Park with a quick stop at the world-famous Wall Drug. After the Park, it's a stunning cruise to the South Dakota cities of Rapid City and Sturgis, before going on to Deadwood. Stay in the Deadwood area for the next few days and enjoy Sturgis Motorcycle Rally's final weekend of shows events and venders. There’s an optional and unbelievable day ride to the major attractions of the Black Hills. For the next two days, your guide will provide piloted rides to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Spearfish Canyon, and Custer State Park. These rides will be on roads like Needles Highway, Iron Mountain Road and Custer Wildlife Loop.
- Ride out of the Black Hills and on to Devils Tower, made recognizable to everyone through the movie Close Encounter of the Third Kind. Ride southwest through Gillette and into Casper, WY for the night. Here you’ll get up close to the western ranges and historical wagon trains. Enjoy bison steaks and western entertainment in Casper.
- After a night in Casper, head south through the Medicine Bow National Forest and into the Rocky Mountains. The road turns curvy and the elevation changes to provide amazing vistas—expect temperatures to drop. After riding through Walden, Colorado, see the town of Granby before stopping in Grand Lake. Granby and Grand Lake are where the Colorado locals go to ‘get away.’ It will be hard to ride out the next day.
- Finish the week's adventure with a cruise over the top of Rocky Mountain National Park. This is by far one of the most amazing roads in the USA with breathtaking views minute-by-minute. Our next stop is Estes Park, where Steven King wrote The Shinning at the (supposedly) haunted Stanly Hotel. From here, it's all back-road gorge riding to Evergreen, Morrison, and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. See the newest Colorado HD location on the way back to Denver.
