The Fulton Gran Fondo is many things, but it's centered around two in particular: Bikes & Beer. This year we took the importance of those two pillars to heart and set forth on a path to elevate and highlight them as best we know how. We'd tossed around the idea of collaborating on a beer with our friends All-City Cycles for years, but the right opportunity never presented itself.
Taking inspiration from their premier Gravel/All-Road/Endurance bike, The Cosmic Stallion, we've created a classic Wheat Ale highlighted by a burst of citrus and punctuated by Fulton's signature style of Midwestern approachability. It's the quintessential "bike beer" and to us represents Summer in a can. It's debuting Friday, May 11th at the Friday Fondo Feast and you can grab your tickets here. And when you do so, get automatically entered to win an All-City Cycles' Cosmic Stallion bike.
Join us for a pre-ride feast at packet pickup on Friday, May 11 at our NE MPLS brewery. Chef Scott Pampuch and The Fulton Taproom Kitchen crew will be cooking up goodies fit for someone about to ride 100 miles on a bike. We're going whole-hog again this year with the help of our friends at Tangletown Gardens, which means pulled pork and a slew of other tasty items are on the menu. Friday night's live entertainment is provided by local musician Andy Cook who will be playing songs from his new release. You can buy tickets now by clicking here (space is limited).
This event is open to Gran Fondo riders and the public
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
Ticket cost includes one food serving and one Fulton Beer.

Are you new to cycling? Maybe you're just getting your season off to a solid but moderate start (aren't we all with all the April snow?). Maybe sitting down for 100 miles isn't in the cards for you. Let's be honest, 50 miles is still plenty far for a Saturday morning! Whatever the reason, the Medio is here for you. It's all the fun but half the distance, and still offers an aid stop in the middle. It's $54.95 through the end of April, so move quickly to save some $$.
