The annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally kicks soon and if you're coming from the west or the south, you'll be riding through the state of Wyoming. Here are some of the Cowboy State's best biker bars to visit along the way.

Captain Ron's Rodeo Bar in Hulett - The Ham 'N Jam Rally has been a Sturgis Week tradition for decades. Although the party is a lot tamer than it used to be, thousands of bikers still stop at Captain Ron's every year on their way to South Dakota.

Dime Horseshoe Bar in Sundance - Another legendary bash for Sturgis-bound bikers is the burnout contest and rally, which is held every year on Wyoming Wednesday at this rowdy roadhouse.

Eagle's Nest in Cheyenne - The Capital City's resident biker bar is a friendly dive in an old A-frame building on West Lincolnway.

Hideaway Bar in Mills - Billed as a "sportsman bar", the Hideaway is a popular hangout for bikers in the Casper area.

Longbranch Saloon in Hawk Springs - A popular stop for travelers on US Highway 85 since 1963, this steakhouse throws a huge bash for bikers heading to Sturgis.

Pour House in Rock Springs - The biggest biker bar in western Wyoming has hosted riders on Interstate 80 for nearly 20 years.

Saloon No. 333 in Beulah - This biker-friendly dive on Interstate 90 is known for bikers and their annual Testicle Festival rocky mountain oyster eating contest.

Although they aren't technically biker bars, the Buckhorn Bar in Laramie and The Mint Bar in Sheridan are historic saloons known for their biker-friendly attitudes.

I-90's Best Pit Stops

Driving from Sioux Falls to the Black Hills is a hefty trip. It's pretty difficult to make it across the state without taking a pit stop. If your bladder can take it, it takes about five hours to make the trip. If you're the average person you will need to stop somewhere. So what are the best places to make that quick stop to refuel and relieve yourself?

I went to Black Hills State University in Spearfish and my family and I take at least one trip there every year. I have traversed the state probably a hundred times or more. If you are going to make a stop along the way, these are the places to make it.
