On this Veteran’s Day, the Kitsbow team would like to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all of the men and women who have served in our armed services at home and abroad.

Today, we honor the combination of our Veterans and our favorite mode of transportation. Here’s a look into a special group of amazing men that served their country via 2-wheeled steed. Produced by Montana PBS and Directed by Gus Chambers, this is the story of the 25th Infantry’s bicycle trip from Missoula, Montana, to St. Louis, Missouri in 1897. The African American infantry took the trip to test a theory that the bicycle would replace the horse in transporting men for the army.
