    Have any Deadwood fans that bike every done or consider doing this? http://www.ridethetrail.com/trail_trek/index.php

    It's a trail that follows the old Burlington Northern rail line through the Black Hills into Deadwood. Each year in September they have a 3 day bike ride that covers most of the trail. It's too late for me to participate this year, but I'm definitely considering it for 2007.

    Looks fun, things you might want to find out is:

    Camping? hotelling?

    Bring your own tent, rent from a supplier? Does the $150 fee cover any rental fees for tents if such a thing.

    Find out if the ride is limited (whether it's going to be a 10,000 RAGBRAI or a small ride with limited riders.).

    Organized multi-day cycling tours can be very fun, assuming the event is organized well, it's a good chance to ride and enjoy it. If the volunteers set up the tent and cook and stuff, it is even more enjoyable for you.
