This is the lively story of the only bicycle corps the U.S. Army ever authorized.  Using buffalo soldiers, this 1890s African-American unit conducted drills and exercises on wheels.  They rode into Northern Montana on muddy trails and toured Yellowstone on their 100-pound iron bicycles.  As proof of their capabilities, these Iron Riders pedaled 1,900 miles from Ft. Missoula, across the snow-dusted Rocky Mountains and steamy Great Plains, to St. Louis.  As they approached the city over 1,000 civilian bicyclists rode out to escort them into town in a great parade.  Learn more about the adventures of this little known buffalo soldier unit and fascinating details about this era in America.  Well researched and a good read.  Full of rare pictures and drawings.
