It is about a two day, 1000 mile ride from St. Louis Missouri to Sturgis South Dakota. There are several different routes to go but this is the one I rode in 2006. I left House Springs MO and road up Hwy W to I-44 and rode west to Hwy 100. I then road west to Hwy 47 and turned north on Hwy 47 along a twisty ride to I-70 at Warrenton MO. This is about a one hour ride and a short cut if you are coming from the southern part of the St. Louis Metro area. I hate riding interstate but it is hard to get there in two days without doing so. I road west on I-70 to Kansas City then turned north on I-29 through western Missouri into Iowa. After crossing into Iowa, I continued north on I-29 through Council Bluffs and into Sioux City Iowa. There is a nice area in Downtown Sioux City for a break if needed. Also, if you have someone needing tires for a trailer or auto, check out Ben Fish Tire, very helpful in case of unexpected tire replacement. Continue north on I-29 into South Dakota and exit onto Hwy 50 at the Johnson City exit. I rode west on Hwy 50 through Yankton to Hwy 37 and road north to Parkston South Dakota for the night. There is a great little motel (Parkston Rainbow Inn) that is extremely biker friendly with good rates. There is also a local steak and tators restaurant across the street that was delicious. It was around 600 miles from House Springs to Parkston. Fuel stops can be few and far between out in the western states so after leaving Parkston and heading north to Mitchell, I filled up. I turned west on I-90, and road with the rest of the heard to Walls, The Badlands, Rapid City, and Sturgis. After leaving Sturgis, I continued west on I-90 past Spearfish and into Wyoming wear I turned north onto Hwy 111 to Aladdin Wyoming. Be sure to stop at the Aladdin Cafe for some good food and pie at very reasonable prices. After having some pie ;) I rode west on Hwy 24 into Hulett Wyoming and Devils Tower. There are not many people that stay out in the Hulett area during bike week but we enjoyed it. I takes about an 1 1/2 hours to ride into Sturgis but there is a lot of good riding in northeastern Wyoming and northwestern South Dakota. My favorite watering hole in Hulett is Ron's Rodeo Bar, don't forget the Ham n' Jam on 'no panty Wednesday'. Ride safe

As others have pointed out, I wouldn't consider riding interstates to be a 'great roads' submission... Sure, they come in handy if we merely want to "get there," but c'mon, they're not FUN...

A nicer option to get from Omaha, NE to the Black Hills is to take HWY 75 from Omaha North to Sioux City, then West onto HWY 12 to Valentine, NE, then HWY 20 to Chadron, NE, then HWY 385 North into the Hills.

I have ridden these interstates, they are just that. You said you hate interstates, but yet you want to share them with people looking for great roads. ????

To get across South Dakota, take SD hwy50-hwy18-hwy79-hwy36-alt hwy16 (pigtail road/Mt Rushmore) north to Keystone-west on hwy16-north on 385-then north on 85 to Spearfish. It's a beautiful, scenic, and some jaw dropping views. Unless you're in a hurry, stay off the interstate.
