We'll be "propelling" our bikes 20.3 miles with 470 ft. elevation from the Redstone Arsenal Gate 9 Visitor's Center to tour MSFC rocket venues and the US Army aviation displays. There will be rockets, and missiles, and machines that fly. Flight suits are not required.

This ride requires accompaniment with the ride leaders for access onto Redstone Arsenal, a helmet, lights, and a gov't photo ID, such as a valid driver's license. For more information contact Rocket Ride Leader.
