SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota family agriculture and conservation group is hosting a statewide bike ride to boost support for alternative energy and transportation.

Friday night’s Tour del SOL ride is hosted by Dakota Rural Action’s Solarize SD campaign and local bike organizations.

The Solarize SD campaign was launched in July to inspire homeowners, renters, farmers and ranchers to learn more about their electricity use, how to generate and use more renewable energy and how to end waste to help the budget and the environment. The campaign runs through the end of October.

The campaign is partnering with local bike organizations and riders in Rapid City, Spearfish, Vermillion, Brookings, Madison, Rosebud, and Sioux Falls.
