If you are flying to the Tatanka MTB…

Fly into the Rapid City SD Regional Airport. (RAP)

Get a rental car; we suggest you rent your car from Casey’s Car rental; call 866-748-2277 and ask for Dennis, mentioning the Tatanka.  Casey’s is an off-site (in Rapid City) business, which means when you land you will need to call from the airport and they’ll be there in about 20 minutes… advantage being you save the “airport tax” that Hertz and Avis and all the others have to charge.  Here are driving directions and a map.  If you want anything from a bike shop or Wal-Mart, make those stops while in Rapid City.  Once you arrive in Sturgis, your shopping options are limited.
