Bikers cycle historical highways

BISMARCK, ND Earlier today archaeologists and cyclists toured North Dakota's historical highways.

They stopped at Chief Looking's Village and Double Ditch Indian Village State Historic Site.

People peddled the morning away while participating in educational and fun hands-on activities.

The total round trip distance was 16.8 miles, including the watering stations every few miles.

"So we are looking at archaeologist sights on both ends so there's some sort of way for us to be able to talk about properties that we manage, and help people understand these great places to go out and see and spend some time," says Erik Holland, Curator of Education.

'Cycling History Highways' is a program with the State Historical Society.
