“No other event in Sturgis can match the world class-motorcycle atmosphere of the Legends Ride, from which 100% of rider’s contributions go directly to its chosen charities.” “We are delighted to see so many celebrities, business leaders, media and rally goers come together to support this worthwhile event.”

The Legends Ride kicks off in historic Deadwood with events and entertainment at the Silverado-Franklin and Deadwood Tobacco Company followed by a scenic ride through the Black Hills, ending up at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip for a special riders-only reception with complimentary food, drinks and triple-headliner concert featuring Jared James Nichols, the Doobie Brothers and Kid Rock.
