Beware of this road the last 25 miles or so.
From Mandan to the Casino (about 43 miles) is beautiful...recently resurfaced, and a dream to ride.
However, beginning a few miles south of Prairie Knights Casino, the road turns bad (the State DOT doesn't do maintenance from there to the SD line), so you have to watch for huge patches, bumps, and holes/heaves in the road.
There is an especially rough patch around Kenel; be careful.
