It's a festival. It's a race. It's group rides. It's a clinic. It's a tradition. The Space Race Rumpus takes place every June in Pocahontas County, WV, which has some of the most scenic roads and trails in the mid-Atlantic. The rides and races explore both the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's unique property and the surrounding area.
