DEADWOOD — Legendary rock star Dee Snider of Twisted Sister was the “leader of the pack” at the 11th annual Legends Ride, which rumbled its way through Deadwood’s Main Street Monday. Snider was joined by more than 100 riders from all over the country including heavy-hitters of the motorcycle world and celebrities such as Ricky Carmichael, Sean Mcnabb, Tom Berenger, Shannon Aikau, Horny Mike, Ryan Evens, Michael Lichter, and Rod Woodruff. 

“Where else do you get to have movie stars taking your picture,” Woodruff said.

“The Woodruff family always does good work,” Snider added. “They’re an inspiration to me, and to work with these charities … and be involved with this event is my absolute pleasure.”

The ride ran from the Franklin Hotel in Deadwood, to the Buffalo Chip campground after a charity auction. The event has raised nearly $750,000 over the years for the South Dakota Special Olympics and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum.
