The Morgul-Bismarck LoopThe Morgul-Bismarck Loop is a popular cycling route that was featured in the Red Zinger Bicycle Classic and subsequent Coors International Bicycle Classic from the late Seventies to 1988. The competitive bike race - sure to attract professionals from across the nation - is set on a 13-mile loop and has three notable climbs. The final, mile-long climb is known as “the wall” and features a gradual incline culminating in a twelve percent grade. This circuit race is featured in the 1985 film, American Flyers, and remains a popular route for bike enthusiasts today.

You can catch the one & only Superior Morgul ESB from Oskar Blues along with Dale's Pale Ale & Mama's Little Yella PILS at the two-wheeled events all weekend long.
