We took SD38 from Mitchell for most of the way. It was smooth and quiet. We had to switch to I90 for a while, then back to 38 for the way in to town. The last part was hilly and quite busy, with no room for cyclists. After we checked in and unloaded our bikes, we rode over to the river to follow a bike trail to downtown. Some of the trail was excellent and some of it was terrible. The downtown area had no place to ride, but it was a nice area for people, with lots of restaurants and music. The Falls Park is very pretty. Lots of tourists there too. I think Sioux Falls could be a great cycling city if they spend some effort to make it safe and connect the trails. We were even able to find a great sushi restaurant downtown ( Sushi Masa )
