Hello, we will be riding the Mickelson Trail while based out of Hill City in September. We have our cabins booked but weren't sure about cycling rentals. It looks like there are two companies that service the Hill City area of the Mickelson Trail. One Company rents comfort bikes only and the other one rents comfort and hybrid bikes. The one that rents only comfort bikes is a little less expensive for both the bikes and the shuttle service. For people who have ridden the trail, which bike would you recommend... Comfort or hybrid? While saving a little money is always nice, we certainly don't want to compromise our ride by choosing the wrong bikes!
Also, does anyone have recommendations for lunch while riding on the trails? is there someplace in Hill City that will make a box lunch or is it usually possible to find a place to eat lunch along the trail? Thanks so much for all of your help. We are really looking forward to the ride and exploring the rest of South Dakota as well!!
