Looking for another way to promote mobility, a short-lived experiment with bicycles was seen as a means to replace horses. 

In 1896 a select group of hardy men from the 25th Infantry peddled from Fort Missoula, Montana, to St. Louis, Missouri. Their cycling experiences would take them to Minerva Terrace in Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park.

Could you have pedaled your way across that many miles without any paved roads?
