About: Come join us for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's 5th annual Space Race Rumpus! This unique cycling event festival is located at the home of the world's largest steerable telescope, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank telescope or the GBT as we call it around here. The Observatory's location in beautiful Pocahontas County sits in the middle of some of the most scenic views and trails in the mid-Atlantic. The Space Race Rumpus routes explore both the Observatory's unique property and the surrounding area. Over the weekend long event you can participate in guided rides - for both mountain and road biking enthusiasts - and compete on a short track course right next to eight radio telescopes, including the 485-foot tall GBT. There will be rides and races for all ages and levels, as well as cycling clinics and vendors.
