Description

For many years, Hein Hvatum, long-time NRAO Associate Director and avid bicyclist, organized a group each summer to bicycle the 120 mountainous miles from Charlottesville to Green Bank to attend the annual Green Bank picnic. The group rode to Green Bank on Friday, went to the picnic on Saturday, and many of them then cycled from Green Bank back to Charlottesville on Sunday. In this 1984 photo, riders pause for a break in Monterey VA. Left to right: Bill Cotton, Ed Sieveka, Kurt Riegel, Tom Brookes, Craig Walker, Buddy Martin, Hein Hvatum.
