Everybody noticed that Fall is here: leaves turned yellow and red, it is getting colder outside and the football season is in full swing. It is time to fall into fall.
Wheelin’ to Wall
On Saturday, September 22nd, Charon Geigle organized and hosted the second annual Wheelin’ to Wall event. Wheelin’ to Wall brought in a huge crowd of people ages 11 years to 72 years old. The courses to choose from: a 100-mile ride, a 40-mile ride, a 20-mile ride and a 10-mile ride through the beautiful Badlands National Park.
Wheelin’ to Wall hosted 85 participants who chose one of the four riding distances. Participants came from four different states such as ND, SD, WI, MN and NE. Wheelin’ to Wall brought people into our community they stayed in the local hotels, ate in local restaurants, used services of our local gas stations.
We hope the event will grow and attract even more people in the coming years.
