Event dates to be confirmed: August 2017, Coonabarabran
Join the locals for a full weekend of cycling, fun and friendship. Start on Saturday with a 30 kilometre coffee ride and then the fast and furious time...
Launch into Coonabarabran, Central NSW, on the Worlds Largest Virtual Solar System Drive and explore the planets as it you were hurtling through space. Journey through the Solar System and picturesque countryside on one or all of the five drives that lead to Australia's largest optical astronomy centre, Siding Spring Observatory which is one of the country's largest centre for optical astronomy research and learn, fascinating facts about the universe along the way.
The colourful three-dimensional planets on the billboards are scaled in size relative to the huge observatory dome and the location of the billboards are scaled in distance, just as you'd find the planets in outer space - only 38 million times smaller!
The Worlds Largest Virtual Solar System Drive is a daytime experience. Visitors are encouraged to stop at each planet in a safe manner, taking care when pulling off and back onto the roadway.
