What is the Rumpus
all about?
It's a festival. It's races. It's group rides. It's clinics. It's a fundraiser. 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 Green Bank Observatory's unique property and the surrounding area.

Come participate in road rides ranging from 20 - 50+ miles in length and guided mountain bike rides which range from absolute beginner through expert.  Compete in low-key, beginner-friendly road and mountain bike races near radio telescopes! There will be rides and races for all ages and levels, as well as cycling clinics and vendors.

Each night will be a social event with local brews, group meals, tours of the night sky, bonfires, refreshments, live music and even a down home square dance.
Come for the main event on Saturday. Come to camp. Come to try a race for the first time. Come for the challenge. Come for the kids' camp. Come for the Gravel Race. Come for the Toddler Trek. Come to support local charities. Come to reconnect with family. Come because we'd miss you. Just leave your cell phone at home and come.
Adult registration includes all events, clinics, races, camping, dinner, and the concert each night, plus the 2024 rumpus t-shirt!
