In its second year, the tour started at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City and will end Saturday at the Sanford Field House in Sioux Falls, a 525-mile bike ride. RASDAK raised more than $10,000 that will benefit those affected by the winter storm Atlas that swept through western South Dakota in October. “I just felt we needed to help them in their time of need. So we called it the Rancher Relief Ride,” said RASDAK President Kasey Abbott. (Justin Harned/Republic)
