PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Biking enthusiasts who haven’t already signed up for the annual 109-mile Mickelson Trail Trek are out of luck.

All spots for the three-day event that’s scheduled to begin Sept. 16 have been taken.

The trek highlights the George S. Mickelson Trail as it winds through the heart of the Black Hills from Edgemont to Lead-Deadwood. The annual event began as a celebration of the completion of the rails-to-trails project and continues as a way to introduce new riders to the trail.

The trail, which was completed in 1998, is 109 miles long and contains more than 100 converted railroad bridges and 4 rock tunnels.
