Iron Riders: The Great Bicycle Experiment of 1896-97
Join Sheridan Community Land Trust for Explore History: Iron Riders, held August 15, 2023.
In this Explore History program held August 15, 2023, from the TRVCC in Dayton, SCLT History Program Manager Kevin Knapp shared an informative presentation about the Iron Riders.
In 1897, Buffalo Soldiers of the 25th Infantry completed a 41-day journey from Fort Missoula, MT to St. Louis, MO. The trip was 1,900 miles and traveled through the states of Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Missouri. The Iron Riders earned their name from the heavy iron framed bicycles they rode, but also from their iron will in accomplishing the 1,900-mile journey.
