How many rallies have the mayor actually hosting a ride through the countryside? The City of Sturgis loves the rally enough to do just that. This year, racing legend Ben Bostrom is the grand marshal for the Sturgis City of Riders Mayor’s Ride at the 76th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Ben Bostrom and his brother Eric are pretty familiar with the rally. For the past couple of years, they've hosted the Boz Bros ride. Ben and Mayor Mark Carstensen will lead the pack at this year's mayor's ride. Additionally, state and local legislators, motorcycle enthusiasts, industry professionals, celebrities, and more hit the road Monday, August 8, during the 2016 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The VIP experience kicks off bright and early at the City of Riders Motorcycle Expo on Lazelle and 4th where the pack will be escorted on several of the Black Hills’ most spectacular two-lane roads and byways. In celebration of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 76th Anniversary, the route will highlight several Black Hills attractions. After enjoying the beautiful Black Hills scenery, the ride ends at Custer State Park with a delicious luncheon hosted by Sturgis Mayor Carstensen.

Participants will receive a one-of-a-kind Mayor's Ride Souvenir Gift Pack, including a limited-edition decanter signed by Mayor Mark Carstensen, a limited-edition 2016 T-shirt, 2016 14th Annual Sturgis Mayor's Ride pin, 2016 Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club pin, and other collectibles from each of our 2016 Sturgis Mayor's Ride Corporate Sponsors.
