Ride the Reactor
Join us on September 22, 2018 for a unique experience in one of our nation’s newest national parks—Manhattan Project National Historical Park! With the inclusion of the Hanford B Reactor in the park, more people than ever before have been able to experience this once secret and restricted area. Ride the Reactor is only offered once a year for a limited number of riders and all riders must be 18 years or older at the time of the event to participate. Participants will enjoy a variable length bike ride on gravel and paved roads. Mountain or cycle-cross bikes are recommended. The $40.00 registration fee includes the bike ride, catered lunch, interpretive ranger talks along the bike route, and a tour of the B Reactor. All of the proceeds from Ride the Reactor will support the education program of the Hanford Unit of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park. Enjoy a great day in your national park while supporting the development of the park’s education program!
