Join the buffalo soldiers at Resaca De La Palma State Park as they transform into the historic Iron Riders. The 25th Infantry Buffalo Soldiers unit experimented with bikes for Army use during the late 1890s by conducting several rides to national parks and ending with a 2,000-mile ride from Fort Missoula to St. Louis. Join our modern day Buffalo Soldier living historians as they take you on a guided 8 mile bike ride to the beautiful Resaca De La Palma State Park.
