This year’s ride is a poker run from Little Rock, Arkansas to Fayetteville, North Carolina. Just as Martin Luther King Jr. was an intricate part of the Civil Rights Movement, so was Ms. Bessie B. Stringfield. In 1965, she founded the Iron Horse Motorcycle Club (Opa-Locka, FL) and was the president of an all male club. During these times, this was unheard of for a female to be riding motorcycles and definitely leading men on motorcycles.
