In 1897, the Iron Riders, members of the all-Black 25th Infantry stationed at Fort Missoula, embarked on a US Army "bicycle experiment" traveling 41 days and 1,900 miles on bicycles from Missoula, MT to St. Louis, Missouri. Join us as we commemorate the 125th anniversary of the ride and the other achievements of the Buffalo Soldiers.
